Hi, first post for me! I've developed an inability to deal with hot,humid weather. I currently live in eastern VA on Chesapeake Bay. I love it here, but am virtually house bound all summer.
I
'm searching for a new place to live, small town, safe area where I can live in peace with my animals (dogs, cats, chickens, rooster incl.). Privacy is important, neighbors are OK,Can anyone help? Oh, I'm 65 so good health care would be a plus.Also, love to eat out. Close shopping a plus, but big-stores are not! I live alone,so don't want to deal with snow,freezing weather.

Hope someone has some ideas!,Debbie in VA

My advice: Start your search in the West.

Agree with the two previous posters...maybe some small town in Washington State?

The west for sure. If you don't want freezing weather, and it has to also be affordable (you didn't say), then I suggest far northern CA on the coast, or southern OR on the coast, such as Crescent City, CA or Brookings, OR, or anywhere in that basic vicinity.

Look around Fillmore, CA. A cute small town, surrounded by farms, good hospitals and a full city within 18-25 miles

I would recommend New Mexico for an affordable, four-season, low humidity climate but your allergies might be a problem. Transplants frequently leave their old allergies behind just to acquire new ones in the desert. Juniper trees and sage/saltbush can cause allergies.

Stick with the yellow/orange areas (zone 8 or warmer) in the western areas, and to avoid the heat stay near the coast, higher elevations or go north.
