You can do all that in Chapel Hill. May be a tiny bit more expensive than your range though, but they have free public buses that run through the whole town at all hours of the day and night.

Birmingham, Alabama

Bring a car in any case you have access to all the outdoors and stuff
You can live on Southside, 5 Points South and not have a car and walk a bunch of places but some of the nice burbs or living further up on Red Mountain I strongly suggest a car.

Theres a fair amount of buses but light rail I don't think so. Some of the buses go out to NEARBY suburbs from what I've been told. The South suburbs are nice and expanding, and well i like all of the burbs for the most part, Trussville in the northeast is very expanding too as is Hoover.
