My girlfriend and I are looking into places to visit and hopefully move to but we both don't do well with the heat. I'm always hot, even inside, so low 70s is my max comfort limit and she has a bone disease that causes the cold weather to bring her a lot of pain. That's no issue for me because I'm not a fan of the snow and cloudy weather brings about seasonal depression from me. We're from upstate New York and hoping to stay in the northeast, but we aren't too experienced when it comes to traveling and we honestly don't know where or how to best start looking. I really appreciate those who take the time to read or respond, and hope everyone has a great week

Nope. Sounds like you want the PNW as it checks both the mild summers and little to no snow boxes but you said you have SAD so probably not the best idea. But just to clarify what do you consider a mild summer and what do you consider "little" snow? If you are dead set on staying in the northeast I'd say look around the coastal areas but problem is the milder summers will be further north but they will have worse winters and the further south you go will have milder winters but hotter summers.

Yeah. Living right on the water is probably the best you could probably do in the Northeast. If you lived on say Block Island, RI you could avoid hot summers, but it would still snow around 21 inches per year and be fairly cold in the winter. Cape May, NJ would lower your experience to winter (down to 13 inches of snow per year) but it would get you hot summers. Somewhere like Ocean City, MD would allow you to avoid winter entirely, but it would be even hotter in the summer. And nowhere in the Northeast would you get what I would call a lot of sunshine.

There's no where in the Northeast and if you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) you'll want nothing to do with the Pacific Northwest. Given your climate requirements you'll want to look around the Southern California coast from Chula Vista north through San Diego up through Carlsbad/Oceanside along with the coastal LA area from Long Beach north to Oxnard and Ventura. There's plenty of sun, temperatures typically are no higher than the low 80s with low humidity and low temperatures typically no lower than in the 50s. Much of that area is on the expensive side but places like Chula Vista, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Long Beach and Oxnard aren't so bad.

In short, not really. But your best bet would be Southern Delaware, extreme South Jersey, or DC.


They all get snow, but the winters in Southern DE/far SJ are noticably milder and rainer then the winters in New England. But then you also have hotter summers. So I would say say the Delaware beach communities are your best option, followed by SJ beaches.

The northeast is < 60% sunshine and snowy until you get down to Virginia but there you're in the 80s/90s all summer long.

Move to San Diego:

No snow
Highs: Mid 60s winter, Mid 70s summer
Sunshine: 69%

Berkeley, Oakland, and El Cerrito, CA. Also, Santa Cruz and Monterey, CA. It rarely gets above 76 in any of those places, and the coastal fog keeps things cooler than that, most of the time. Most places on the CA coast will be fairly comfortable. Good luck affording it!
