We currently live in St. Louis and are looking for a change. We would like to be closer to the mountains and with more outdoor activities. We like going to different microbreweries and other events around town. In addition, move to an area with low crime. I would also like to move somewhere not as humid as STL. I don't mind being hot (no Phoenix type heat) but hate the humidity in STL. We are in our 50s and no longer have children to worry about. How is the humidity in WS, Greensboro, Raleigh areas? Is it as bad as STL? What about microbreweries and activities to do on the weekends? Crime?

Thanks

Raleigh is a different metro are and has its own subforum on City-Data. Both G'boro and Winston-Salem are very nice cities, with a nice variety of things to do and burgeoning microbrewery scenes. I have no idea what the humidity is like in STL, but its pretty bad in NC. The actual value you want to focus on is the dew point. Anything above a 60 degree dew point is pretty uncomfortable. Right now, the dew point in G'boro is 70, the same as STL, so I'm guessing there's not a lot of difference between the 2 areas.

Whats your housing budget?

Our housing budget is $300,000 to $350,000 and we would like 2 to 8 acres of land.

That amount of acreage and price is going to put you at least 15 to 20 minutes outside G'boro or W-S, and a good bit further outside Raleigh. Around G'boro and W-S, look into northern Davidson County, eastern Davie County, or southern parts of Surry and Rockingham Counties.
