What kind of allergy? If you're allergic to pollen... I don't know, New Mexico? Or is this about the ease of finding antihistamines and other medications to ease daily allergic reactions?

Long time sufferer here. It really depends on your particular allergies. I personally find the Mountain West and Desert Southwest to be good in terms of pollen, although altitude and dry air can cause the occasional nosebleed.

I live in the deep south right now, and I there are a LOT of plants here, I thought it was going to be terrible, but for whatever reason it really doesn't bother me at all. Strange.

The big one I would avoid at all costs is the midwest, especially the farming areas. When I lived up there, I had to take full-strength Benadryl. Horrible.

Maybe Hawaii, constant ocean breezes/trade winds.

Places like Phoenix have had an influx of non-native plants and grass that came from the Midwestern transplants mostly who, ruin that for most people. Some other places out in the Southwest are better about using native plants and thus the allergies are better in those areas.

Also I wouldn't always say that. During the spring my allergies spike up, especially out in the desert. A couple weeks ago I took a trip to Saguaro National Park and my allergies were almost killer in certain areas. I suspect I'm extremely allergic to a certain type of pollen or plant that exists out here, that's relatively common in the desert areas. So a native plant, nonetheless. I don't really get these allergies in the populated areas so maybe it's a cactus.

But if you have a dust allergy don't even think ONCE about living out here. Not even once... No... But grass allergy? Yes, come to Arizona, lol. Mold allergy? Arizona is good for that too.

People have allergies for different reasons. The best way to find out is to take an allergy test of your own and find out what your allergies belong too. Then you can make a guess at what fits.

It depends upon the allergy as stated. If like most, it's hardwood tree pollen that's the worst. If that's the case extreme southern Florida (east or west coast) near the water or the desert Southwest someplace like southern New Mexico (Las Cruces) is going to be the best. If you can swing not living in the contiguous 50 states and still want to retain US residency probably some place like the US Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico.

It really does depend on the individual, where you live and what you're allergic to. My wife and I live in CO. Most feel this is a haven for allergy sufferers. Not for us. We're miserable from early Spring through the first snowfall.

Hawaii. the ocean air blows the pollen out to sea, less pollution as well.


Everyone is saying Phoenix because it is the desert, it isn't true. The allergies here are pretty bad. Every house here seems to have a mulberry or palo verde tree, which kill me.
