Are there Lakes nearby?

Near Lake Tahoe should be a good fit. You also have the casinos and plenty to do...

Some - Lake Junaluska, Lake Lure. WNC is much better on rivers/streams/creeks than large lakes though.

Lake Jocassee and Lake Keowee in SC are terrific, and Watauga Lake in TN is also within an hour or so.

I was going to suggest the Rochester suburbs if the OP is seriously into any type of boating.

Yes, Finger Lake towns in or in between the Rochester and Syracuse areas would work in that regard. Geneva may be the community that fits most of the OP's criteria: Downtown Geneva, New York 14456 - The Difference is Downtown!

Perhaps Canandaigua or even Auburn could be other options in that area. Canandaigua, New York *

Madison WI and Asheville NC are the two best fits I agree.

We may be overlooking Minneapolis or the Twin Cities metro, if it isn't big enough.

Ithaca and Burlington may be overlooked in terms of smaller cities, especially given that they are on pretty big lakes and are quite crunchy.

Twin Cities could work for the OP it is a great place to call home. Too cold for me but it fits his/her agenda.
