Among Cities.... probably Asheville. Highlands NC or Blowing Rock NC elevations of 4,118 ft and 3,566 respectively are great small towns for mild summer weather.

This ^

Anywhere mountainous, really is going to be milder than avg. though you are correct in that the NC towns have the most significant elevation which impacts climate. I’d guess though even that Fayetteville AR for instance has relatively milder summers than surrounding towns. Charleston WV though it isn’t all that high does too I believe. Out of non mountainous areas... I’d guess the OBX wins?

Asheville at just over 2000 feet in elevation (center of town, a good bit higher around the perimeter) is the largest city.

Several smaller cities in SW Virginia fit the bill as well however. Check out Abingdon (around 2100 feet) https://visitabingdonvirginia.com/ and Wytheville (around 2300 feet) https://downtownwytheville.org/about-downtown/, Marion (around 2500 feet) https://www.knoxnews.com/story/life/...town/91018002/, Radford (around 2100 feet) https://www.visitradford.com/radford-visitors-center/, Christiansburg (around 2100 feet) https://www.christiansburg.org/572/About-Christiansburg and Blacksburg (around 2100 feet) https://stepintoblacksburg.org/

Among any "real" town Boone, NC is easily the answer.
