Duluth, Minnesota, if you can handle the harsh winters. It satisfies the remainder of your criteria. But below zero temperatures are not for me, nor for a lot of other folks.

A friend of mine moved to Frankfurt, Kentucky about a year ago and while she doesn't have children so I can't comment on the schools, the housing there seems to be incredibly affordable.

The city seems to be clean but not sure about outdoor cafes and the like but most cities these days have them so they shouldn't be too hard to find.

Anyhow, go check out the Kentucky forums and see what Frankfurt is all about. From my friend's description, it's a nice but small city that offers a lot.

Re: Mountains -- About a 4 hour drive to the Adirondacks area; about 5 hours to get to the High Peaks area in the Adirondacks. Not the "sizable" mountains of Vermont/New Hampshire, and certainly not out west, but a beautiful area none-the-less, which is also filled with many lakes.
Umm, Adirondacks highest peak is higher than the highest Vermont peak. The only peak in New England that's higher than New York's is Mount Washington is NH.

Yeah, sorry. I have this almanac that says NH's highest peak doesn't even reach 5,000 feet. I looked it up on the net, though. Mount Washington is higher.
