I've been looking around, trying to get out of the east coast, I have humid and snow and ready for little to no snow and dryer air. I am a college student so i would like to have some sort of social life in the town/area as well as bearable cost of living. I'm also looking to join the military soon.

Thanks,
J.Michael

Nevada has two and only two choices for you. Reno and environs or Las Vegas.

Your spec spells Vegas but if you are willing to deal with a little winter Reno works too. It is mildly more expensive than Vegas.

The "University" is more Reno. However undergraduate you may do better networking in Las Vegas.

Well thanks for your response and input. Coming for PA with a good amount of Snow and Humid Heat do you think the dry heat will be terrible or do you think it is more bearable than east coast summers?

Thanks

I think most will answer "more bearable than east coast summers."

I for one think that 110 degrees with 10% humidity is much more tolerable than 90 degrees with 90% humidity. Once you get acclimated, 110 really isn't that bad. When it gets above 115, then I don't want to be outside for very long.

^^^Yep. The times I was in vegas, and it was triple digits, it was so dry, compared to back east, you can actually cool off a bit when you sweat.

It doesn't seem anywhere near as bad. 90 degree heat with high humidity is way worse than 110 with 10%. Or at least that was my experience.
