I suggest looking at hilly, forested areas located in states that get sufficient rain, not too cold in winter, and at least 150 miles inland from the ocean.
My preference is the Ozark mtns.
not sure why you say 150+ mi from the ocean ?
perhaps out of concern about hurricanes ?
one thing to consider is that Oceans ,Seas and Large lakes nearby will moderate & buffer temperature swings, moderating the extremes that occur in areas without a huge body of water acting as a heat sink in summer and radiating the heat back out in winter,,
