Los Angeles is probably the only place to fit your requirements. It has been long popular for Chicagolanders to relocate for a warmer, sunnier climate. The L.A. valleys usually don't get too hot and the L.A. Basin is the coolest, especially along the coast. Definitely not humid!

If you can handle fog, San Francisco. It's cool, but doesn't go below freezing in winter.

If taxes are an issue, Nevada. Las Vegas is popular with its mild, sunny winters and its resemblance to inland Southern California.

The OPs description of what they are looking for kind of sounds like AZ. I agree with other posters who said that if humidity is a problem in Illinois then don't look down here in the Southeast. Obviously we have a lot of humidity. I will add NM to AZ as a state to consider. Ive always thought New Mexico was pretty, and it does not have as much crazy growth like AZ.

St. George isnt too terribly hot, and the air is dry, which makes it feel very comfortable. A 95 degree day in St. George (which is the average high in summer) feels like 82 in Atlanta.
