The posters in the El Paso forum would be glad to disagree with you. Far west Texas has a desert climate, like New Mexico.

San Antonio, TX was hands down the dryest place I ever visited. I needed a water bottle at my side at all times. What a wonderful blessing that you can live anywhere in the USA!

We currently live in a town of 5000 people - so it doesnt need to be a huge city and preferrably not one.

Warm Weather year around - No Snow - little humidity(if possible) -
We love to be outdoors
Great Schools (preferrably smaller enrollments)
Great neighboorhood communities
Very Safe - low low crime.
Probably wanting to spend maximum 300k (if that much) on a house.

Any opinoins are appreciated.
I am just like you and tired of wet and cold.I am flying in next month to check out houses in the Temecula/Murrieta area.I have talked to a few people who live there and everybody has positive comments overall.You can get a nice home in a great neighborhood for under 300K.I`m moving by years end to give it a try.I moved here from San Diego years ago and other than meeting some new friends here and 4 nice summer months,the rest of it sucks.I`m just across the river from Portland oregon.

We live in a wonderful small town outside of Boulder. Our family is Mom (works from home Full time, can live anywhere), Dad (works in high tech, needs a place he can be employed as a hardware designer). We have two girls, 11 and 9 and are all very active. We love where we live but it's dry and we are getting tired of the cold weather and major heat changes each season. we live in a town of 2,500 and love it although a little bigger would be ok. We like having land, trees, water and mtn biking, skiing, golfing, kayaking close to home. Education for our kids matters and we'd like to live in a State where there are strong, affordable colleges in the future. We earn good money and would like it to go farther so we can live nicely but save for retirement. We are tired of the dry weather and would love to be more coastal. Safety is important and access to a good airport matters because we travel.

Where would you put us???
