I currently live in Wisconsin and have a horse farm. I know I cannot survive the winters forever and want to explore the SE United States. I grew up in DC an DO NOT WANT a place with really steamy summers. Kids are gone so schools not an issue.

I don't mind some snow and I would like to be reasonably near a decent sized city with amenities and an airport.

Any suggestions on where to start?

Except for Boone and possibly Asheville, alll those cities have steamy summers.

I'd look around the Roanoke area if its airport is busy enough for you.

This is an accurate post. Most of the cities on that list are NEAR the mountains and have the very hot and humid summers that the south and east coast are known for. Asheville having a higher altitude is more tolerable.

There might be some high elvation spots east of Johnson city but I don't know if JC would be considered "decent sized". Small commercial airport.
