Most states have varying temperatures and humidity levels throughout different areas of the state. Someone mentioned Tennessee...the humidity level in Knoxville or Chattanooga is MUCH lower than it is in Memphis. In Georgia, the humidity level is much lower in Atlanta (and points north) than in Savannah or Albany. In North Carlolina, the humidity level is much lower in Asheville than in Raleigh or Wilmington. In Virginia, the humidity level is much lower in Roanoke than in Richmond or Norfolk.

It's a little thing called the Appalachian Mountains...cities and areas at higher elevations are traditionally not as humid.

All that you mention is true; however, doesn't Hawaii get humidity as well? Not to mention the cost of living being rather high.

Default sympathizer from chicago/nyc

hi,
i am looking for similar things and had recently visited san diego. It is beautiful and sunny and the ocean is incredible. However, if this matters to you, the one thing i found really disappointing is the incredible highway driving and traffic noise and that every hillside is built up. There seemed to be little respect for leaving some wild spaces untouched or somehow containing the build up.
good luck!

You might want to look around more. San Diego County and city have enormous amounts of open space including hills and mountains, which have not been built on. We have the most variety of scenery in any county of the U.S. And SD as well as the whole SoCal area is a coastal desert. We get about 10-14" of rain a year. Not all desert has such huge temp swings. Our biggest problem is home prices although they are coming down. The reason they were the first to go up is that is a beautiful even spectacular place, which created high demand. That coupled with the fact that all our flat land is built out unlike TX and AZ. I hope you're lucky enough to live here. We'd love to have you!

If you don't like humidity don't move to TN. I lived there for 20+ years. I live in Colorado Springs now and the weather is perfect. We have nice winters with some snow but the even in February we had several days in the 60's. Last week was in the low 70's but today it snowed a little. The summer is dry but not too hot. It's just really nice. The cost of living is average. I've done alot of research on other cities and our economy is better than others. The people are very nice, lots of military, more conservative. Tons to do outdoors and the scenery is gorgeous.

Is there anywhere in Florida which is not humid? What about Ocala? I'm looking for the same thing as the original poster.

Default Florida

the panhandle is not as bad. When I visited Panama it was very windy, too windy that particular day but that might not be typical. It is very pretty. I've been to Orlando in the winter and it was cold. Not freezing but we needed a coat. I was surprised.

u must be crazy, panhandle has notoriously high humidity. Anywhere on the COAST is going to be cooler/windier...

This is middle of the panhandle...typical of the entire area, southwest ga and southern alabama are just as bad or worse hot and humid...

Tallahassee has a hot and humid subtropical climate, with long summers and mild, short winters. Summers in Tallahassee are hotter than in the Florida peninsula, and it is one of the few cities in the state to occasionally record temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 C). The summer weather is characterized by brief intense showers and thunderstorms that form along the afternoon sea breeze from the Gulf of Mexico. The average summertime high temperature is 92 F(32 C). Conversely, the city is much cooler in the winter.

yeah the air on the gulf side (unless there is a t.s. coming through) is often rather stagnant.
