But San Diego is more humid than I expected.

Thanks! This was mid-afternoon though as I mentioned.

So far it seems Prescott, Arizona is closest to perfect climate for me. Phoenix is too HOT and brown but I love the low humidity. Prescott is about an hour up into the mountain, is green, should still retain the low humidity of Arizona and low rainfall. I don't mind cool or even cold weather but don't like snow or ice.

I like the idea of San Diego because of being near the ocean and also my wife is Filipino and there are lots of them on the West coast, probably more LA but still closer than Arkansas (ewww!). Also, the seemingly perfect temperature range for my tastes.

The mountains of Arizona are cool, dry, and sunny during summer, but iot snows in winter. Seattle is cool, but it rains consistently. Prescott is nice, but it rains more than you would expect, almost every day in summer. Prescott is about 5400 feet. Low enough to be mild in winter with little snow, but high enough where it is cool during summer. It is kind of out of the way in terms of interstates and major airports, Prescott is in a high desert. But it rains in the afternoons in summer, and winters are filled with days of nonstop rain or snow. The record low is -21, while the record high is 105. Average summer temp: 86. Check out this site for climate info for prescott.

If he's staying or zoning in the Arizona area, what about Sedona, it's between Flagstaff and Phoenix.

Western Washington state, where I live, has much cooler weather than Florida, and has low humidity. I used to be a New Yorker, so I understand the horribleness of hot, humid, muggy days in summer. Not here. Never happens, because the breezes from the ocean keep the air drier and also clean.

Seattle and the surrounding area have a thriving economy, with breathtaking natural beauty including tall snow-capped mountain ranges, old-growth forests, rain forests, ocean and sound, islands, agricultural land, quaint towns and busy cities. There's everything here from alpacas and eagles to high-tech software companies.

And Anywhere, don't be scared. Your life is the adventure you create for yourself, and you will choose well. And know that no matter what path you choose, Life will absolutely show you the best it has to offer you from that path. Have fun deciding!
I would check those stats. Remember, people, that humidity is not only there when it's hot. Western Washington is very humid in winter and somewhat humid in summer, but the mild temps moderate it.

This map might be helpful. Seattle is much less humid than the east coast.

There is the catch. Other than coastal region of California you have to putup with other wather rleated exrtremes in dry dusty drught;long winters or extreme high temperature; lengthy rainy season with little sunshine. It really just depends on the person has to what they can tolerate. Its alwewsy best to visit the area during that season that ois extreme before moving.As a friend from Colorado warned me once ;do not equate visiting a ski resort to living with the snow in ohter areas yourself.More or less the same as visiting Florida in the summer at a beach resort to living there.

San Fran has low humidity but still not very warm. The weather changes quickly, lots of cloudy days.
Does anyone know about any of the Hawai'ian islands?

I am from Mobile, Alabama and iving in Mesa, AZ outside of Phoenix. The weather here is gorgeous, always sunny and humidity is usually in the teens. Mobile, on the other hand, has humidity levels in the upper 90s most of the summer. It is May and many days I dont turn on the AC in AZ, although most do, as I dont feel the heat here like I do in Mobile. 94 degrees in AZ feels the same to me as 80 degrees in AL heat wise. In Mobile, most are running the AC when it is in the 70s due to the humidity which makes you feel the heat much more intensely.
There is more to it though than weather. AZ is a transient state and if I didnt know better, and the weather wasnt so great, I would sware I was living in Illinois or in the NE somewhere. The norm here is a northern accent, so my drawl is commented on constantly, but in a nice way. Not many southerners come to AZ to live, mostly northerners escaping from cold climates and a states with failing economies. No one here is from here and I have found it to be a very distant place. I did not know the true definition of southern hospitality, until I left. I agree with Dorothy...there is no place like home!
