The Erie Canal in New York. Many communities in or near the canal should offer what you want as far as quality of life is concerned. And there are plenty of places to fish in the canal and in rivers and streams that are near the canal in upstate, central and western NY.

I looked again today and misled you with this statement. I forgot I had put a ceiling price of $325k on the search when I typed that. This is the most expensive listing on Realtor.com for my town. 777 W FIRST STREET, Realtor.com (http://www.realtor.com/search/listingdetail.aspx?zp=49454&typ=1&sid=fa2e430c2323 4b3abae870b66911bcc2&pg=8&lid=1092738264&lsn=71&sr cnt=71#Detail - broken link)

The house is dumpy, but the land is unbelievable. Looked at this place before I bought the house I did. At that time they were offering the house and 6 acres and the remaining land as two sales and not as one package. If I had the money I would buy this for just the land in a heartbeat. You can find river frontage for much less if you don't need a lot size that has 20+ acres.

What are you talking about? There are lots of good schools in the cities. And all the OP needs is ONE of them!

I agree. And you should be able to find a great house with no trouble at the budget you have to work with.
