Why don't you do a search of DOT offices or job openings and ask us about the nearby cities/towns.

Check out Boone, Blowing Rock, western va, northeast TN, even Knoxville. Swnc gets hot and humid. The tri state nw corner is super family orienteed and outdoorsy. You also don't have to drive to do stuff like in Asheville.

Take a hard look at Johnson City. It sort of flies under the radar but it ticks all your boxes with the possible exception of good employment options. However, healthcare and government are two of the largest employment sectors here and jobs are available. It's got a college town vibe (ETSU), a younger population and a resurgent downtown. Asheville is just an hour away making for easy day trips but Johnson City has some of the same things people love about Asheville, just in a more livable package.
