Hello all,

I'm still trying to figure out where to move. I absolutely hate where I live here in the Midwest and for a lot of reasons, I just need a change.

I would love to live somewhere that has mild temps like Northern CA or the PNW, but lack of affordable homes in a nice area and the rain and gloom of the PNW, I just can't see that those places are viable options for me.

I've thought also about CT, West Chester, PA, Cape Cod, Portland, ME, Portsmouth or Manchester, NH. I'm thinking that if I have a nice house and a good SUV, opportunities to get involved in a nice community, beautiful scenery I could deal with winter weather, especially if it's a bit less awful than here in the Chicago area.

Any thoughts?

Travel to areas of interest, only you will know if you have found the right place for you!

Thanks, but I can't go all over all those states. I'm trying to narrow it down.

My advice living in Vancouver is don't get fooled by winters that are mild but wet/cloudy. If it's going to be winter, better the real deal than months of straight overcast and rain.

That's what I'm thinking.

Ventura was my previous suggestion, did you check it out? Now adding Sacramento. Maybe settle for a nice townhouse or condo.

Sacramento is too hot. I think all of CA is out for lots of reasons.

What exactly are you looking for? That will determine where to look.

Olympia, Vancouver, or Spokane in WA, Tri-Cities if you don't mind desert.

In OR, Salem or Eugene. I don't think you would like Medford because it is hotter than Sacramento, but it is still a pretty/affordable area.

I would check into communities in the Piedmont regions of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. The weather would be milder than either the Northeast or the Coastal South, and there are some lovely towns and cities within that region.
