All these cities have reliable access to forested areas. Thus, it will depend on whether you like more "exotic looking" subtropical forest (seen in/around Houston and Charleston), or more deciduous forests (seen in Raleigh and Atlanta).

As far as closeness to mountains, Atlanta comes in first, then Raleigh, Charleston, and Houston, in that order.

As far as oppressiveness of summers, Houston is the most oppressive, with Charleston being a close second. Raleigh is third, and Atlanta has the least oppressive summers.

Houston has the mildest winters, followed by Charleston, then Atlanta, and, finally, Raleigh.

Assuming you have a preference for mountains and mild summers, then choose Atlanta. Otherwise, you will have to be more specific with your preferences.

Atlanta. Closest city to the mountains. The coastal cities will be the most humid.

4/6 my company doesn't have a office there so I wouldn't be to keep my job going there . If my job could be mobile to anywhere some of my top choices are las cruces , Santa Fe , Asheville , flagstaff places like that .


Something about salt lake was unattractive to me and Tucson seemed perfect for me but it's high crime and heard white people are minorities and treated like outsiders and meth heads run rampid, also not a fan of a desert lifestyle ( critters )
