Vermont may be a good spot for those who want cool weather.

If you are not a fan of hot weather in the summertime, then there may be some places your moving company could bring your moving containers. While many areas in the South can be quite hot during the warmer months, there are some parts of the country that are not that bad. Getting away from some of the heat may be a nice change. If this sounds like a good idea, it may be smart to consider one of these spots, and get packing.

San Francisco
The West Coast - especially California - is typically known for its beaches and hot weather. Despite this, San Francisco is actually quite a mild place in the summer, as it averages in the low 70s in the summer months, according to Smarter Travel. This doesn't mean there aren't ever hot days, but these are more rare. The city is also within close proximity of many different kinds of coastal activities, which may make it nice to relax on the shore in the mild weather.

Portland, Oregon
The Pacific Northwest is also another area with a tendency to have cooler weather, so one of the many cities in this region may be a good spot for a relocation. Specifically, Portland could be a top choice, as it has plenty to keep you busy. According to MNN.com, hiking, camping and skiing are all popular activities throughout the year. The many outdoor activities may be nice, especially if you like to be outside, but don't like dealing with a significant amount of heat. Additionally, the city may be a good spot for those who like cycling, as this is quite popular among the population.

Southern Maine
New England has plenty of areas that are not oppressively hot, so the summers can be managed a bit more easily. One of these places may be the southern tip of Maine. The coastline is quite mild, as it averages in the mid 70s during the hottest time of year, according to Smarter Travel. The first few coastal towns as you enter the state are actually less warm than Portland up the coast. This area is also within close proximity to many large cities in New England. For example, it is less than two hours from Boston.

Burlington, Vermont
Heading to Western New England will also get you to an area that can be quite enjoyable in the summertime. If you aren't a big fan of the coast, considering Burlington, Vermont could be a good option. The city is a leader of environmental awareness, according to MNN.com. This may make it a good spot for those who like cities that are close to the wilderness, but aren't too hot to deal with. The winters are typically longer in the Green Mountain State, but you won't have to deal with many days of high temperatures.

Breckenridge, Colorado
The Rocky Mountains also have some cooler temperatures during the year, and one of the many cities here could be great during the summer. Breckenridge, Colorado, is one spot that doesn't get too hot, and is also a bit quieter during the summer. According to Smarter Travel, the area is popular during the cold weather due to its popular ski resort. However, this allows for many options in the summer, including some notable hiking and cycling on the many trails in the area. This could be a good place to live near, or even a fun vacation commute from Denver, as the city is less than 100 miles from the area.
