What are some relatively cheap cities with low humidity, all four seasons and mild summers. The intensity of the winter does not bother me.

Below are just a few cities that still have the affordability factor working in their favor, and some variations of seasons. I also tried to keep it to “larger” areas as well.

Honestly though, the West Coast & PacNW will be the best overall. As well as a few other states like Arizona, Montana, Utah, Colorado, etc...

Salt Lake City, UT
Spokane, WA
Reno, NV
Boise, ID

Unfortunately, that would be a big no. East Coast is simply humid, thatís a trade off compared to West Coast.

If I HAD to maybe recommend somewhere, possibly somewhere like Portland, Maine or maybe somewhere in upstate NY like Albany or Rochester? Iím probably dead wrong though.

Buffalo/Rochester/Albany are Northeast, but not East Coast To those who live there, though people in other parts of the country sometimes call them East Coast. Regardless, I agree with Buff & Roch a to low summer humidity. Not as familiar with Albany, but it's probably not as humid as the true east Coast cities.

When I said Albany or Rochester I figured Iíd sound like an idiot, guess I was on to something after all!

Pittsburgh, PA.

Definitely has lower humidity in the summer. Overall its climate is quite mild, compared to its eastern neighbors.

No, the eastern half of the US is all very humid. For example, a couple people mentioned Pittsburgh, Pa which is 72% humidity year round compared to Denver at 52%, vegas at 30% or Phoenix at 35%.

Mild summers was the keynote. Phoenix and Las Vegas do not have mild summers on any level of measurement. Pittsburgh summers are definitely mild. Definitely not as dry as Denver, but definitely more mild than Denver. Denver can be quite hot, given its elevation and geography.
