As someone who grew up in Illinois, Peoria's topography is unlike what I knew of Illinois.

It's been mentioned on here earlier, but my vote also goes for the Twin Cities. If you can handle the winters of course.

Cincinatti, Omaha and St. Paul. Duluth overall is the hilliest, though it is more of a mid sized city (metro of almost 300k).

Minneapolis-St. Paul is the most outdoorsy (but pretty flat), Cincy is the hilliest (but pretty cloudy), and KC is probably the sunniest (but not known for being outdoorsy). You'll probably have to sacrifice something to get it all. St. Louis may be the best blend of sunshine, big city, hills, and outdoorsiness, but I don't know anything about St. Louis' outdoorsy side, as when we lived there we didn't take huge advantage of it (and my parents are fairly outdoorsy).

Some Mssissippi and Missouri River towns have very steep relief. Dubuque Iowa, Hannibal Missouri, even Atchison Kansas.
