Hello everybody, i currenty live in upstate NY (Rochester) and have to give the weather here a big thumbs down! We get six months of snow followed by six months of rain!!
I'm 23 years old and looking for an area with a growing or lively economy with a decent climate. By decent climate i mean a generaly pleasant temperature year-round, but from reading some of the posts in this forum i realize that everybody has a their own version of pleasant weather! So ill be more specific, little to no snow is important and if the heat rises above 85 degrees farenhiet, too much humidity can be bothersome. 72 degrees is perfect for me, i dont break a sweat just standing still and i dont have to wear extra clothes.
Also, i'm in to culture and technology, without music, people, and innovation i feel isolated. i think i could deal with isolation for a while though if i was making 50k a year and comfortable walking around in a tshirt and jeans!
Well, any suggestions?

Im going to do some research on Virginia, seems the winters are warm enough so you dont have to deal with snow, and the humidity isnt bad like florida so the summer should be good also..

Try So. California. Never snows (if you miss it, you can take a 90-minute drive up to the mountains). Average winter weather is 65 during the day. Very little rain most of the time. You'll never see rain in the summer. The "rainy" season is between Dec. & March. Summers can be hot, depending how "inland" you live. I'm by the water, so it's much cooler and plesant in the summer. Mild humidity and no mesquitoes!!!

Check out Albuquerque. Great weather all year with very mild winters, growing economy, friendly people, great food. All in all, not a bad combination.

Charlotte and Raleigh would be good choices. Good weather, affordable costs of living, great people, and two of the best economies in the nation.
