This requirement limits you to:
Southern Arizona; (usually) southern New Mexico and southern Nevada; along the Mexican border; the Gulf Coast; and the Pacific Northwest Coast (west of Interstate 5). Hawaii is out of your budget. You said no to the humidity of Florida; Puerto Rico would be the same. Much of the Gulf Coast is humid too. Georgia and South Carolina maybe.

How about if the weather requirement was eased to: ALMOST NO SNOW OR ICE in winter?

What exactly about snow/ice do you dislike? Do you know that you hate it or are guessing you would?

Sounds like you're pretty limited to southern AZ, NM and SW TX, and if you want a city that offers you a sprawly, suburban existence with conservative values, that leaves you with Phoenix, Tucson, El Paso and possibly Austin and San Antonio.

I like Boise a lot! But I'm concerned that about its winter weather, and a touch concerned that it's too small.


Iconographer- any thoughts between Phoenix, Austin, & San Antonio given the discussion so far?
I wouldn't consider conservative values to be a deal breaker.

Austin is getting more and more expensive, with more and more people, resulting in longer lines to do anything and more traffic commute. So not sure it really fits some of your criteria - though you may or may not agree, depending on where you are coming from.

People that love San Antonio really love it. It also might even be a slower pace of life than Austin is these days, but it is also big.

Personally? I'm OK with any of them. Austin felt like most fun of the three, San Antonio the biggest snooze.
Strangely enough, the suburbs of west Austin were reminiscent of SoCal.
You certainly wouldn't lack for the company of fellow CA expats there.
