It really depends on what you're allergic to TBH. Generally speaking, though, some coastal areas and the drier climes of the Western US typically favor allergy sufferers while humid areas in the interior of the country are among the worst places to live for seasonal allergies.

There is no gold standard for best place and does depend upon what you're allergic to. While there has been a prevalence of information alluding to dry desert climates it's been proven the benefits aren't necessarily there other than for asthma sufferers. Many allergy sufferers tend to find areas with heavy hardwood tree pollen the worst, and know from personal experience sub-tropical coastal locations (literally on or very close to the coast) are the best options. Examples would include Miami, Ft Lauderdale, Naples, Marco Island, Ft Myers Beach and the Florida Keys in Florida. Many will mention seeing yellow pollen from Pine trees in some of these areas, but bear in mind pine pollen unlike hardwoods is not microscopic and nowhere near the inhalant/allergy trigger of oaks, junipers, laurels etc.
