I live in the south and it is hot as blazes here. I as trying to relocate me & my children out towards the west where the humidity is less. My son has Asthma and the south does not benefit him any. We are accustomed to slow paced life style, small town, everyone known everyone...that type. I need to know if anyone knows if there may be a town like this out west....& possible where sidewalks and trees exsist and even maybe not to terribly expensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks yall so much!

I'm not sure you're going to get any asthma relief in Kansas.

We have already hit the 90's. I would suggest watching the weather on the internet of areas that interest you. We do have a problem with humidity and SE KS is actually worse than SE AL. You have on one side of the state, trees and allergies and the other, no trees and dust. You would need to be more specific to get recommendations that would be worth anything. Lower cost of living areas mean lower wages and I would want to know a job would be waiting for me when I arrived. In the smaller towns, it is usually cheaper to be able to buy a house than it is to rent and anything decent is unreasonably priced because they can get it. As far as I know, no small mayberry-ish towns exist anywhere and if they do, the people are keeping it a secret to maintain that status. It just really depends on what you are looking for specifically, what it is that you need. Make a list of things that are important to you and your family and prioritize the items.

There are a lot of trees in any of the western towns...That's part of being in a town anywhere. Though dust is pretty minor since you're in a town. But the low humidity is completely independent of town/rural. "Miserably humid" is when it's over 60%.

Depending on how much you want in a small town and how small, McPherson, Lindsborg are bigger and offer more. Also, very small towns like Marion, Burns, Peabody are near Wichita and ElDorado. Or you can look somewhere like Silver Lake which is only 15 minutes from Topeka. Rossville, Wamego, Marysville are also on Highway 24 between Topeka and Manhattan. Kansas is filled with small towns with all kinds of options.
