Head down to the Carolinas or Tennessee. Knoxville is a pretty nice place in one of the most scenic parts of the Southeast.

Background: My boyfriend and I are looking for somewhere new to move! I am a 26 year old RN (BSN) with 3 years experience. But I hope to go back in the next 2 years for my Masters in Nursing Education. He is a machine operator; but looking into going to trade school for welding or something similar. I am from a very small town in NJ (Central Western= cows, farms, etc. part of NJ). We are not a huge city people(they make me nervous!). Safety is huge for me. We are avid hikers and campers- love the outdoors; and would love to make friends who are interested in the same! But the only problem is I have Raynaud's so looking for somewhere warmer or at least has warm seasons--and so we can hike more/spend more time outside. We are looking to eventually settle down get married and have kids in the next 5 years; So, it would be great to find an area that is good for families just in case we fall in love with the area! Also hoping to find somewhere affordable---but I suppose anything is more affordable than NJ!

Any suggestions would be great! I know I'm searching for a needle in a haystack- but if you live anywhere that you love let me know!!
You ought to send a DM to Kaytidid, over on the Salt Lake City forum. She's a native of New Jersey who moved to Salt Lake and wouldn't go back for anything. For outdoor recreation, nowhere in the country surpasses Utah. We do have winter, but we also have three other very distinct seasons, and the humidity is low here, so neither the heat nor the cold is as intense as it is elsewhere. Also, the economy is strong and so is the emphasis on family. We have the youngest median age of any of the 50 states. If you haven't considered it, maybe you should.

If you want to stick to smaller towns with more warm weather than what you've got right now, lots of outdoor activities plus good economies and low cost of living, here's where I'd recommend:
Gainesville GA
Spartanburg SC
Cookeville TN
