Geez, make up your mind. This is what you said about Knoxville less than two weeks ago in the Kentucky forum:

"Knoxville is nice, clean, and safe."

Maybe you'd like the Colorado Rockies, Utah Rockies, Montana Rockies or somewhere in the deep Appalachians? Black Hills aren't too shabby either!

Those are just what I picture from your criteria.

I would say Northern California; especially the Coastal Range; fits your requirements.
Coastal northern Cal: 50s in winter, 60s in summer
Coastal range: 50s in winter, 70s in summer.
Sacramento Valley: 50s in winter, 100s in summer
Sierra/Cascades: 30s in winter, 80s in summer.

Then again, some other good ideas are the Blue Ridge Mountain states (TN, NC, VA, WV), and perhaps southern New Mexico (in the mountains).

hmmm... go to Seattle. A lot of people from Alaska move here and it is usually 40-70 degrees...snows MAYBE once a year but it dosen't stick. I think you would like it.

Colorado isn't as cold as Alaska (the Denver area has an average of 40 degrees in the winter), and it's more developed (although you can find secluded areas too).

Lots of outdoorsy people. Lots do to.

I've never met a person who doesn't love CO.

You would like Idaho, it is a state with an extremely diverse landscape and much like Alaska in some respects. Idaho ranks right up there with Alaska when it comes to true alpine scenery. The only state in the union that has more classified wilderness, whitewater rivers, and more named mountain ranges than Idaho is Alaska. And the only other state that has more roadless mountain/forested lands than Idaho is Alaska. The largest concentration of fresh water lakes in the West is in Idaho. Idaho also has the largest variety and some of the highest numbers of big game in the lower 48 and some of the best fishing, and I mean huge fish like you are used to in Alaska. We have Salmon that swim in from the Pacific back into central Idaho where they spawn, kind of a cool fact.
There are a ton of Alaska transplants in Idaho and especially the Boise area.
Idaho is definately an outdoorsy state, you should check it out, it is much more mild than Alaska with similar scenery.

just to let you guys know in more depth what i imagine when a dream about the kind of place i'd like to live...well groomed landscaping, not alot of dirt roads, lots of parks and recreational things to do as a family, an awsome nondenominational church, not super overpopulated but not too small where everyone knows your name,and if i drive a few hours, i can be in a different climate, good place for a greenhouse, we can build a house worth 250k that is between 2000 and 3000 sq ft.
