The beaches along the SE coast of Florida have nice breezes off the Atlantic that make it more comfortable. I've found Miami Beach up to Jupiter Island to be comfortable in the summer. However, just a mile or two inland and it gets oppressive. I rather like the humidity, but I can understand why many do not.

I have a bad heart and various health problems and was told to move to a lower altitude and as little humidity as possible I was at a loss at where that would be. I've lived in Nashville, Massachuetts, Vermont and grew up in Florida. I now live in Co. Spgs. where the elevation is over 6000 ft. but the humidity is relatively low, most of the time. I've been looking at the NM area around Albuquerqe, still 4500 ft but about the same climate. Does anyone have any suggestion?

Mr.Saturday Nite,
If you are still posting,I am going to speak from seven years of life experience in Hawaii,working in a very high profile job.I will avoid the "politically correct"answer and speak the truth.
There is a good bit of Rascism in that part of the World and it is anti-WHITE and growing....therefore your off hand remark about how friendly it is there, is an innocent mistake.
We left there for Phoenix and we could not be happier to be home.
mistake.

In terms of climate, (parts of) Arizona, New Mexico, at least southern Nevada, southern Utah (and perhaps southern Colorado), western Texas (but NOT eastern Texas!) and most of California would fit your description.

Most of you missed the Coachella Valley Area of CA. (Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, La Quinta, Indio.) Its perfect for Sieren because it has the best outdoor activities and services for active Seniors in the United States. It is very affordable, but still has upscale Amenities. It has the warmest winter weather and although very hot in the summer days, the summer nights are very pleasant, and the summer days can be mitigated by going up to the local mountains in 30 minutes or the Beach in just under two hours. Its not like being in the middle of the Arizona or Nevada Desert were it too far from other climates to escape a hot day on occasion. Your within 2 hrs of L.A. Orange County & San Diego. I love San Diego, as I grew up there. But it is expensive to live there and has one of the worst real estate markets. The coast of Southern California in general has one of the most mild climates in the world. Summer highs barely in the upper 70's and winter highs in the upper 60's. Never freezes and the lows only make it in the 40's for maybe a few weeks during the year.

and @ the florida comment...hehe yeah I don't think I could take the humidity there...:P

Thanks!!
Didn't you say LOW humidity? Seems like a lot of folks give incorrect info occasionally. If you move INLAND from SanDiego to Orange Grove, Vista, LaMesa, etc, you can find lower humidity, but it gets hot hot hot!

Redmond, OR, has extremely low humidity, and about 10-12" of rainfall. The winters have been getting colder as we hit the 'climate change' edge!

Do not move to Texas. Even if you chose an area of the state that is less humid than most of the state, you'd find temperatures over 90 and often under 60.
