Until u can visit, look at videos on you-tube or use google maps / street view to wander around virtually. Good wishes for the decision-making.

What is the health insurance position? Will the company cover yours plus hers plus kids? Does she understand how very different US healthcare is?

$50k for a family of four, even in Colorado, will be a bit of a struggle

You might consider Boise, Idaho, it isn't too big, but is a big small/medium city has all 4 seasons. Awesome downtown, and pretty decent nightlife. You get some snow in the valley, but tons in the mountains around it for skiing, snowshoeing whatever. The only downside is that it isn't super diverse, and somewhat remote but so is Colorado.

Reno is also a good option as is Colorado Springs.

All these places are dry compared to back east or Europe, but you won't have to deal with humidity. Summers are hot and dry, but not too long and it cools off significantly in the evening.

Lives in Scotland...enough said...those frugal, penny pinching Scots y’know.

Albuquerque or Farmington, NM are good.
Santa Fe too but maybe too expensive.

Scotland is the most beautiful place on earth. I am sorry you don't like it there. I am a native Californian, and that is the only place I would move to.
