For someone with zero to little tolerance of humidity perhaps which is from my experience those who live in the Pacific Northwest or California. To the average American, it's not a big deal and certainly not deterrent-worthy.

After re-reading the OP's list of requirements, I think Raleigh is a very good recommendation.

-About an hour from Pamlico Sound; a reasonable drive to the mountains as well
-Surprisingly sophisticated for a Southern metro of its' size
-Attractive environs
-Good weather, but a definite change of seasons

I have a friend who relocated there years ago from Miami. She bought a loft-style condo in a rehabbed cotton mill on Capitol Avenue. She's within "spitting distance" of Downtown(you can see the skyline from her window), and you can literally cross the railroad tracks behind her property to access this great little area that was at one time light industrial and is now a complex of shops, bars and restaurants.
She also found it an easy town in which to assimilate. Her neighbors are mostly fellow transplants, and the atmosphere is very convivial, like an upscale college dormitory. On Friday after work folks open their doors and the hallway is a rolling cocktail party!
Long and short of it is that you couldn't dynamite her out of there now.

You're right.

I checked, average July high is 89....average July low 71
A bit steamy but not that bad, I could have sworn the average high was over 90,
using older 1961-2000 or 1951-1990 climate normals, I think it was cooled a degree or two.
Anyway, not overly hot like cities in Texas of Arizona.

Umm KC and Cincy do not have a large body of water nearby. Chicago does but the winters are worse there than Boston.

I think Tacoma is probably a good bet for the OP.

The OP herself listed Cincinnati and Memphis in her opening post so obviously that wasn't a totally necessary feature.

There is a giant river alongside both KC and Cinci
