I'm not sure how big of business it still is, but driving up there recently, I did notice a few major timber plants/storage areas for cut down trees, so I'm assuming it's still going on

The only places in the United States that would meet your weather requirements are certain parts of the West Coast. Delaware is milder in the winter than where you are now, but it does snow periodically and the summers are warm and humid. I would think the small coastal towns are not as oppressive as the big cities of the mid-Atlantic region however. The best climates in the eastern US for avoiding both overly harsh winters and hot summers are in the southern Appalachians, particularly western North Carolina, but it's still relatively humid in the area and is well above sea level - and is in the South if that's a deal breaker.

You don't get great climate and cheap in the same package. So, you can add Crescent City, CA along with Eureka, as far as mild temps year-round, beaches to walk on, woods to walk in, and lots of wet, cloudy days to do it in, in a very remote area, where many people in town are missing front teeth, and if you need urgent medical care you will be sent via helicopter to real civilization.

But, hey, the weather is mild year-round and it's affordable.

You want mild temps, it has them all the time. You want cheaper COL, well it has it. It is somewhat of a tourist area as well, so it does have restaurants, hotels, shopping, etc... Plus if you enjoy the outdoors, there's plenty to do.
There's just not a real job market, unless you happen to be in the timber business.
It's not very bustling and there aren't any jobs..or healthcare for that matter. And in my opinion it's too cold much of the day to be considered comfortable. When I think about mild weather in California I think about places like San Diego, Monterey, or even Martinez or Benicia.

I would agree with the weather in Monterey, but Martinez is downright hot. I live in Pleasant Hill (right by Martinez) and they're consistently the same temps.

I personally like Eureka weather, a little chilly some days, but never hot. I definitely agree about the jobs. But when someone wants affordable, with mild weather, there's not a ton of places that would fit the criteria, but I think Eureka does
