I currently live in Bend, Oregon. I've lived in Oregon most of my life. The past 5 days I've been snowed in! I'm over this. I hate snow! It's just cold and miserable. I'm ready to move. My family lives in Eugene/Portland Oregon. Way too much rain and gloomy days. I want somewhere warm (NOT hot! Arizona summers would kill me. ) Low humidity and mild winters. I'm a country girl. Don't like big cities or freeways. I would love to have a comfortable home on a little land (1+acre) to breathe. The weather in San Diego is PERFECT but WAY too expensive for a single mom. Does anyone have suggestions of places for me to research? Mild climate, small town (not too small) maybe under 100,000 people? Oh and near WATER.... river, lakes, etc. to camp and enjoy the outdoors. I haven't been anywhere other than Oregon..... I'd really appreciate input on areas I should start researching...... Thank you!

Maybe Prescott, AZ or Sierra Vista, AZ or Hendersonville, NC.

I would rethink this, especially since you said you've never been outside of Oregon. Your winters aren't that bad...and most places in your criteria? It will be worse.

I agree with the other post mentioning Hendersonville NC. That area south to around Spartanburg SC would be a good option. It's less humid in the summer than the rest of the Southeast US thanks to higher elevations and has four well-defined seasons, none of which are severe or long. It's truly a beautiful area with a lower cost of living than the national average and is growing with a decent economy, minus the congestion and bad traffic.

Maybe all you need is a vacation during the coldest time of year.

Look at the areas within the Olympic Rainshadow of WA. Sequim, Port Angeles, etc. I think it fits your criteria reasonably well.
