We thought we had found the perfect areas for us until we visited them and found they were not. We were looking at relocating to Ithaca, NY or Des Moines. Unfortunately, my husband needs warm weather (not too humid) but he does need it to be mostly sunny. We are seeking a midsized city, good for kids, and we need a lot going on. We moved over from Bath, England a few years ago and really miss the atmosphere. We miss how beautiful the city was and how much there was to do at all times. We also do not have a large amount of money, so we need a place that is affordable. We are both liberal minded and do not mind living in a conservative area, as long as everyone is accepting of other's opinions. Please, please, please help. We want a change in lifestyle quick! I am looking forward to your responses.

Thanks.

You could try the Denver area. Very sunny, and not as cold as you may think. Lots of warm, sunny days in Jan/Feb. Very dry.

There are many little cities in the DC area that are very charming, not too expensive, and fairly sunny. Frederick MD, for example always has festivals going on (there's even one today!). Another great city is Ellicot city, MD Both are small but very close to large cities like DC, Baltimore, And Philly, which i think are very pretty. Good luck! Alexandria, VA is really great too as well as charlottsville (not really in the metro, but semi-close)

I think Richmond, Virginia would be a right fine choice for y'all!

^^^^^^^You think Richmond, VA is great no matter what the criteria.

Anyway, I wouldn't recommend Des Moines, seriously. It is conservative and you'll die of boredom.
