Amirelez, as far as lower humidity, West Texas is better say up near Amarillo down to about Wichita Falls and then humidity increases more as you go east and south. The hill country has pretty good weather with mild winters but hot summers. Most of Texas has mild winters except maybe way up in the Panhandle say like Dalhart where the wind and cold can be pretty cold in winter. Places like San Angelo, San Antonio and Kerrville would be places to check into. They do have hot summers and really I don't know anywhere in Texas that doesn't have hot summers. If you live near the ocean like in Corpus Christi, the wind blows on shore and helps some with the heat. The wind blows quite a bit there so it is a little more milder due to the winds. Houston, though close to the ocean, is a very hot and humid city so I don't recommend there.

Last time I visited Texas I went to galveston, Houston,Beaumont,lufkin,nacogdoches,and Tyler. I liked the gulf area it was nice and as more humid.When I went up to east texas in the hill country I noticed the humidity dropped. Tyler was my favorite. My wife and I are wanting to move to Texas and Tyler is on the top of our list because the weather isnt too bad its a nice area and I love the price of housing compared to california.

You are welcome Amirelez. Tyler is a great choice. It is a nice city. "The Rose Capital" with all the roses. I know the central valley and Fresno pretty good so I know the heat you are talking about with temps that get into the 100s in the summer like around Childress, TX. West Texas would be similiar and yes the hill country will have lower humidity then down by Houston. For your list I'd have on it 1. Tyler 2. Kerrville 3. San Angelo and 4. San Antonio but you might not want a city as big as San Antonio. Housing would be cheapest in the Tyler area and San Angelo. San Antonio is pretty reasonable too. Compared to California, everything in Texas is reasonable!

I keep checking the weather in the Dallas area vs. the weather where I am now in Southern Pennsylvania and I'm in awe of the dewpoint and low humidity! It's been so hot and humid here this past week you sweat the moment you walk outside. I'm looking forward to the possibility of a little less humidity!!

Look into Ft. Davis, or Alpine Texas. They are small, remote, dry, and reasonable temps in the summer.

It's TRUE. We CAN'T breathe in Dallas and any other area in TX outside of WT and the Panhandle...LOL!!!

As noted, you don't get any better climate in Texas than in Ft Davis/Alpine/Marfa, if low humidity is what you're looking for. These areas are very small, though. If they were not so far from skiing, I would be living in one of those towns. They're all quite wonderful, IMHO. They get hot, but not as hot as the rest of TX does.
