maybe towns in the rain shadow of the olympic mountains such as the following

Port Townsend, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_T...ington#Climate

Port Angeles, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_A...ington#Climate

Friday Harbor, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friday...hy_and_climate

Oak Harbor, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Ha...gton#Geography

Anacortes, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anacor...ington#Climate

Sequim, WA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sequim...ington#Climate

These towns are still going to be fairly cloudy in the winter, but they won't be as rainy as Seattle. Most of these towns also have quaint historic downtowns, though they are a bit too far away from Seattle to commute, if that's what you were planning on doing. They also have tall trees just like the rest of western WA, though not dominated by pines, but rather douglas fir trees. They also almost never get hot and rarely go much below freezing.

About 90 miles. Prescott is a smaller city, kinda sleepy. But pine trees, beautiful.

4. The atmosphere of a small beautiful town where quiet enough, but not deserted and nice walking distance to the downtown with restaurants.
5. big (or relatively big) city nearby
Number 1 alone is going to limit you to coastal California, most probably.

Still, San Francisco has gotten as high as 102 degrees Fahrenheit.

Well, ok, I think it can be negotiable Say 90(+/- 10) and 25(+/- 10) maybe, but please no Florida humidity or Alaska snow

It looks nice but couple concerns here:
- COL even higher the California (bay area)?
- Island sickness? I heard some people has it (don't know if it'll be a case for me though)
