Any States with easy access to the ocean. Easy access to the outdoors wgere you can hike, run, kayak, rock climb, camp, and so forth. Political landscape is Libertarian and moderate Conservatives. Relatively low taxes and low cost of homes. Has 4 seasons, but very mild winter.

Any States come to mind?

I'd say the Pacific Northwest, outside of Seattle and Portland. Boise and Missoula MT are simultaneously "hip" and politically moderate (perhaps even somewhat conservative). Perhaps Spokane too.

I agree with LiveLoveLaugh, North Carolina fits the bill.

Pacific Northwest, the south is not libertarian.

Virginia would fit the bill in/around Richmond, Norfolk/Virginia Beach or the I-81 corridor from Harrisonburg south.

Perhaps the Eastern Panhandle of WV is a sleeper in this regard. It also has rail service to DC, as a portion of the region is actually in the DC metropolitan area. It is also in that I-81 corridor mentioned earlier. Places like Shepherdstown, Charles Town, Ranson, Martinsburg, Martins Ferry and Inwood may be some places to look into in that area.

For all the outdoor stuff yes but the only one that doesn't fit is low cost of homes (at least in western OR, WA) and taxes (Oregon). Also OP will be trading in snow for rain. Some people consider that worse (not me though. Lived in New England most of my life and tired of the snow lol)
