All metros between approximately 700k to over 3M.
Apart from possibly Salt Lake City, which of these cities are closer to large bodies of water?

Northern Ohio fits all that if you consider Cleveland or Columbus "big" cities.
A city with 500 thousand or more

Seattle, Snoqualmie pass is only 54 mi from downtown, without traffic it's about 1 hr and with traffic it can be up to 2 hrs. You could also live in Bellevue, Tacoma, or Everett to live closer to the mountains.

Probably Boise. There are large bodies of water outside of Boise city limits and a few hours away is a glacial lake, Payette Lake as well as the large lakes at the base of the Sawtooth Mountains.

Also, Idaho has the most miles of whitewater rivers in the Lower 48. Boise is surrounded by rivers.
