Title says it all. 50 degrees and 60 degrees in the winter sounds nice, but then I think about how much I hate humidity and high heat. Any spots inthe USA?

Southern California no doubt. 60-75 degrees during the winter. If you live close to the coast (not way inland like Riverside or San Bernardino) the summers are usually 75-85 degrees with minimal humidity. I'm a few miles inland from the coast and the temperature is usually 85 during the summer with some heat waves up to 95, but no sticky humidity. Inland Empire is usually 90-105 during the summer (so don't move there).

San Diego in particular has some of the best.

Let me add that home prices need to be reasonable also. Thanks for the help though.

And honestly, I would rather deal with a s--tload of humidity than move to California

I figured it would be somewhere out there on the coast but the ridiculous housing prices kind of kill that idea from me. I am currently in the midwest so seeing some of those prices are a serious shock to the system.

Yep, I was going to add you will probably be struck with terror when you see home prices in areas with good temps.

Maybe Oregon??? You will have really rainy winters though.

You can't have it all. Every place is going to have so something negative either if it is to much rain, hot summers, cold winters, more grey days than average, humidity, big bugs, mean bears, Pruvian Flute Bands, crime, expensive housing, run-down housing, etc.

I've been reading this forum for a while. It seems like everybody always wants the most perfect place to find happiness. That place doesn't exist.

Look at the North Coast of California - Humboldt, Crescent City, etc. Housing prices along the North CA. In the North Coast, housing isn't too expensive and it has pretty cool summers and relatively warm winters.

San Francisco has mild summers (San Francisco has not reached triple digit heat in a whopping 8 years) and mild winters, but housing there is very expensive.

You've just cut what few options you have by about 90%! You don't say what you think of cloudiness. Western WA, and OR have small annual temperature swings compared to most places in the U.S. (cool summers, relatively mild winters). If not for the expensive housing issue you could try Hawaii. It's tropical, but consistent summer trade winds usually keep it from getting too hot and/or muggy. Maybe there are cheaper areas (such as Hilo in the rain belt on the big island).
