[quote=radraja;4112726]It doesn't get as hot as Phoenix or Vegas.

Higher altitude.[/QUOT

yea the average high in Flagstaff is 81 and the average low is 51 in July, another suggestion might Crested Butte, CO, very cool and dry, but very cold in winter, and if you don't mind 200+ inches of snow a year than this could work out for you.

good luck

I know,my friend lives in CO and just had snow recently! Of all the suggestions so far I think South Dakota sounds the best,I still need to be accessible to family here. Although my mom used to fly out to Vegas alot,I could just go to Reno then

You'll be surprised at how hot it gets in SD in summer, in 2006 there were places that reached 120!!!! but that's not normal, normal would be upper 80s/low 90s with the eastern part of the state being more humid than the west. Sioux Falls is more humid than Rapid City during summer. you can expect the southeast portion of the state to have similar summers to Philly.

I can prob handle heat every so often,but not mostly every summer like here.
In SD the person said it was driest in the Black Hills,where Rapid City is I guess.

NOPE altitude is very important in the Rockies and Southwest, if you like Flagstaff, AZ and Sedona, AZ you will like Santa Fe, NM as well, it is about 8000ft in altitude, for example 5000ft at 100 degrees will equate to 85 degrees at 8000ft.
