If you don't like hot, humid summers do not move to the southeast. I second St. George, Utah.

The OP doesn't want endless seasons of extreme heat or cold either, so there's the trade-off. At least Atlanta offers three seasons of moderation and the heat/humidity of Summer is only bad for a couple of months, versus five months of extreme heat in the SW.

Or she can compromise by going up in elevation and looking at towns in the Appalachians.
Another possible compromise might be around Cookeville TN, it seems to have a lot of what she wants, with a mild climate. It's a popular destination for people looking at TN

OP, you're really missing out if you coop yourselves up for six months out of the year. It's mid-November, and people are still golfing. At the moment, it's 61 degrees in Milwaukee.

suburb of Austin or Dallas TX.... Houston if you can get use to the mosquitos and humidity...

No state taxes here... prop taxes are sky high to make up for it though... but no tax on purchases of food and medicine

Most people who think DFW is a "dry" climate have never lived in a dry climate. The Metroplex is humid. Even if it's _slightly_ less humid than Illinois, it's a good 10 degrees warmer on average during the dog days of summer. Daytime highs at or near 100 and lows pushing 80 degrees are common in July and August. It's a sauna there.

If St. George, UT, is too hot, then go 250 miles up I-15 to Provo or head over to either Grand Junction or Montrose, Colorado. Better winters than IL and exponentially more tolerable summers than the southeast.
