What we are ideally looking for:

Good resturants
Parks and/or hiking (love the mountains)
Historical homes/ areas, love little bungalows and older homes w character vs newer
Ideally in the southeast but open to other areas if nothing meets our criteria there
Love farmers markets and a focus on green living
Happy people

Please help us come up with places to call home! Thank you!!
Louisville! Much bigger than the other options yet, it does not feel that way.

Specifically, the Highlands of Louisville
The Highlands of Louisville, KY USA home page

Tons of Farmer's markets:

Farmers' Markets Locations - Healthy Eating - LouisvilleKy.gov

The "buzz" on Louisville is all over the web, but here is a good article:
Midwest Foodie Destinations: Louisville

More articles about the buzz building on Louisville and the outstanding foodie scene:

The Buzz on Louisville - Mayor Greg Fischer - LouisvilleKy.gov

A very active forum where you can meet local foodies:

Louisville Restaurants Forum • Index page

This website will let you connect with some people before you go to visit the city:

Discover | New2Lou

If you have any more questions, let me know. I know of some nice rentals on airbnb.com where you can check out the city with ease at a low cost.

Try the Philadelphia area. Great schools, fantastic food, superb universities and some of the most historic neighborhoods you will find in the country, even in the suburbs.

Ithaca has its share of green energy and renewables, socially and spiritually conscious. four great state parks within a half hour or so. very historic architectural and reasonable cost of living. best in restaurants and across all price categories (more restaurants per capitia than NYC yes? great hiking and you wont beat the farmer market and vineyards and wine trail etc.
