Default Nice weather all year round?!?

I live in New England. Winter has yet to arrive and I have already had to scrape frost off my windows. I hate the cold, and I'm not a big fan of snow either. I think it should snow on Christmas and that's it. Although I don't like extreme heat either. Does a place exist where the weather is a nice breezy 70 degrees with low humidity all year or most of the year?

I live in South Kona in Hawaii. The weather is perfect year-round, even when it gets in the 80's there's always a trade wind blowing.

The locales are split up in two parts...Makai (close to the sea) is low humidity. Mauka (more in the mountains where the coffee grows) is higher humidity. But even that isn't TOO bad. I live Makai and haven't have mold problems.

I HATE winter. I was born and raised in Alaska, it truly is my home, but slipping on ice? Parkas? Boots? Horrible driving conditions? I don't miss it one bit.

Anyone notice that all of the listed places are expensive to live? How about some cheaper paradise?

Yep, San Diego!

When I was moving away, I went to www.findyourspot.com and took the quiz to find the best place to live. Some were cheap!

The Big Island's not terrible. You don't have heating costs, or AC costs, fresh fruit is available on the side of the road, lots of farmer's markets.

Albuquerque isn't too bad. We do have a winter that lasts a few months but nothing like New England.

Florida. No state tax, and many "more affordable" cities/suburban areas.

No offense, but she asked for low humidity. Florida's humidity is the pits IMO. I found Hawaii too hot and humid for my liking also. The CA coast has the best weather in the US, with SF being a lot cooler than Southern CA, but if you stay near the coast in Southern CA the weather can't be beat. Get away from the coast and it can get very hot.

Charlotte, North Carolina!
We moved from Nj 11 yrs ago and never looked back.
We get the four seasons and our winters are mild.
I can't say that Charlotte is the best place to live economically, but I'm sure the surrounding areas are very
affordable.
I will say this: so far, we haven't felt the
real estate crunch as much as some other folks around the country.

FL is definitely not 70's year round. More like 90's. It's the end of October, and we've only had a handful of days in the 70's. Most days now are mid-80. Plus real estate is absolutely ridiculous, even in the smaller towns.

I don't know about Florida. I lived in Orlando for 6 months and it definitely got cold in the winter. Not as cold as it gets up here, but it was still cold.

central coast california is pretty much what you describe. the relative humidity is high (good hair for me) except for when there are santa anas, but is a dry growing climate and doesn't feel humid because of the ocean breeze.

it's not super expensive relative to the rest of california, depending on which city you live in.
