Some of the "mountains" get to over 8,000 feet, but I don't know if you could live up there.

Your best bet for a different climate would be to just go over to New Mexico, or hit the Galveston or Corpus Christi beaches.
ABQ has nice weather

Default When I retired

I moved down to Ajijic Mexico which is a little town on Lake Chapala 30 miles outside Guadalajara. Lots of Texans here. People from almost every country on earth are here. It's close to paradise I can tell you that.

You won't find what you're looking for in Texas. I suggest colorado, NC, SC, or Tennessee. Maybe cali if you can afford it.

Which of these areas has a strong economy? North Texas weather to me is almost the opposite of the Pacific Northwest. Pleasant weather from October to April. We have some family in Georgia and North Carolina in both Asheville and near Charlotte

What field are you in? Denver's been booming for about the last 5 years.

My spouse and I are in technology. We haven't considered CO, Utah would likely be a stronger candidate since we have some family on the West Coast.

Itís often still in the high 80s/low 90s in the fall and late spring. The non-diversity of terrain is also a major downside. Very far from the coast or mountains. Is there another location that I would like better (ie the good things about Texas, but not the downsides)? Where to other Texans like to move to when they want a change? I can tolerate 3 months southern summers, I just donít want them extending into other seasons.
Atlanta is your answer.

Salt Lake City has a decent IT sector.

For Colorado, Denver is booming.

For NC, Charlotte and triangle area are booming also. Strong economy all over the state.

For SC, I wouldn't say any area has a strong economy, but Charleston is stable and beautiful. Good weather too.

For Tennessee, Middle Tennessee (Nashville) is booming with a great economy. The other parts of the states are stable.

In the home stretch of my tenure in Arizona, I began observing a lot of Texas tags on the roadways, but only ever knew a handful of Texas transplants while living there.

To my understanding, there are quite a few Texas transplants in Colorado, New Mexico and Washington.

Many years ago, there were probably a lot of Texas transplants in California, but they've either died off or retired and moved back to Texas or another state with a lower COL. The houses you pass with diesel trucks and dirt-bikes in the driveway in places like Lakewood or Yorba Linda are probably their children or grandchildren, though.
