Maybe someone can point me in the right direction. My wife and I are retired in central Florida. We can’t take the humidity and heat anymore pretty much 10 months out of the year. We have been thinking of moving to North Carolina around the Piedmont area because of the climate. We would like to bewithin 10 to 15 miles of a population of 30,000+ because of shopping and medical care. When I look at a map to plan a road trip, I go blank. Has anyone decided to look at a different state and planned a road trip? How did you go about it? Do you just drive to an area like Winston Salem, High Point, Clemmons, Greensboro etc? We would have to sell our house here in Florida and then rent first since buying a house would be too overwhelming. Unless people are familiar with an area, how do they do this?
I looked for someone like a relocation specialist but can’t find anyone.

Not far enough north and/or high enough elevation to escape humidity.

Thank you for the reply. The dew point here in central Florida today is 75 while the dew point in Winston Salem according to the weather map is 60. That is a huge difference is how comfortable it feels. Where would you suggest living for comfort in NC?

Today? We have a cool front today.
In any case look at the raw humidity numbers

The dew points will be about the same (for the most part) in June, July and August. The difference will be be in May and September, when NC will be much more comfortable.

To find comfortable dew points in the summer, you have to be above 3,000 feet in elevation. The Triad is about 800 to 900 feet.
