Hi guys.....So glad I found this site! We're retired Californians.....but of the more conservative "boomer" persuasion. We're looking for a place to move, outside of California, with minimal to no snow, as well as a more right winged climate. (My bones don't tolerate extreme cold, nor my head the politics.) We're open to any place that's budget friendly, so the obvious popular retirement communities just won't work for us. Upon retirement we moved from our native San Diego to the less expensive Hemet valley in Riverside County which, having a very hot desert climate, is not at all green landscape friendly. What can I say....I miss my lush yard. Would love a mountain type environment with pines, but without too much snow.
I know....asking far too much.... but that's why I'm so happy to have found this site. Appreciate any suggestions! Thanks so much!

You might check out the mountains of Northeast Georgia in/around towns like Blue Ridge or Clayton which have become popular for retirees due to cost of living along with a moderate climate (minimal snow/ice) and while it's more conservative...not rabidly.

Eastern Kentucky, NE West Virginia, Eastern TN would be areas which would have greenery/mountains and be more 'right'

These areas are all pretty low cost to live in and land is relatively inexpensive as well.

Lots of greenery here too but I think it would be far too snowy here for you.

Southern VA also might be a match but I don't know how it would be in terms of the general political ideology there; maybe someone else can chime in who is familiar with the area.
