Born and raised in upstate New York .

I was woundering which metros in the u.s will provide me a similar climate ( seasons ) I love fall and winter I could do without humid summers

But also love the landscape . Hilly, forested and mountainous


And I know it's asking a lot but also want to throw in there lower cost of living

Spokane WA could be a good option.

Culturally speaking, I feel like the place most similar to Upstate NY is Michigan, although it may be too flat for you, and you wouldn't avoid humid summers. It would be cheaper however.

Sorry...It didn't post the individual pages.


I'll walk you through. The first 2 lines are for Regional Price Parities and the third and fourth lines are for Implicit Regional Price Deflator. Both are explained further down on this page from the Bureau of Economic Analysis: https://www.bea.gov/newsreleases/reg...ewsrelease.htm


You can click on either one, then click on the circle for MSA and then Next Step. Then, click on Next Step, as MSA has already been selected. On the next page, select all areas and all items, then click on the Next Page. Then, select 2015 and you can view the information in terms of cost of living by both criteria in comparison to all metro areas in the United States. So, that can be a great guide in terms of comparing cost of living. By the way, you may be surprised by what you find.

It is similar minus the land features and it is slightly/a little bit cheaper.


The Spokane suggestion may work, as it sounds similar to some of the areas in Upstate NY, but with some different demographics.

What about Burlington, Vermont or Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania?
