As you have children I'd look carefully at school districts before you choose.

If I could move anywhere in the US at the moment I'd probably look at the Carolinas. Nice blend of climate and nice countryside. People I know who live there seem v happy.

I wouldn't recommend Atlanta, and I'd avoid Florida, personally - although if you chose your town carefully you could find good school districts.

Seattle - is that an option? Rainy and expensive though.

Portland OR?

I'm sure others here can talk more knowledgably about California but I'm put off by the high cost of living in a lot of it. But that may be unfair.

We r in london and a few yrs in i am overwhelmed by cost of living: but partner loves the pace and mild winters.

We're in southern California. It's expensive but way better quality of life and housing than London. Way more for your buck and glorious sunshine every day.

Tx all for ur advice. Ideally fewer clouds than london so seattle would be out

We are in South Carolina and love it so far. We've only been here a couple of months but the weather is fantastic. Blue skies and sunshine most days.

If I could I’d live in California or Hawaii.

I also love New England but that fails your mild winter weather requirement.
