I know a couple of Brits who have been to Charleston SC in the summer and nearly died, so I can only imagine what the very similar if not worse heat/humidity does to them in Savannah in the warmer months.
ok, good point,lol

Asheville, NC, would be my choice. Or, even better, Highlands, NC.

How would you know? Have you been to every single town on Long Island? It's over 100 miles long, every single area isn't stuck up. There are some nice, decent middle-class towns.

Houston- my previous home - would not fit the bill, but check out the Texas Hill Country, one of my favourite parts of Texas.

Imagine the Cotswolds and the Lake District supersized into one.

Texas Travel - Hill Country

Ashland, Oregon was a pretty good suggestion but I think I'd still go along with Portland. More at your fingertips there. Once you find a neighborhood you like you can relax, enjoy the numerous events here during the summer months, partake from a choice of many different hikes, rent a car for a fairly short drive to the coast, or to the eastern Oregon desert. LOTS of "green" here, lots and lots of funky little coffee shops, and the climate is similar to what you're used to.

Or consider somewhere in the Columbia Gorge, although I would never recommend it during the winter months.

Another suggestion is Pismo Beach, Calif. If I ever came into a wad of money, that is where I'd move to in a heartbeat. It's small but quaint, with gorgeous beaches, great weather, close vicinity to numerous things if you plan to rent a car, and very laid-back. Santa Barbara is another option. It also has interesting history and is close to wine country.

Because I have actually been there and have relatives there. Besides, the OP is not looking to be near big cities so LI is out

^^No, he said a half day's drive to a major city. The eastern tips of Long Island aren't a half day's trip, but like 3 hours.

In that case, NY or Houston metros would work
