I'm in the same boat,
so to speak. Just focus on the "semi" part.
The "beach" around NYC isn't something to write home about. But, the cycling and hiking is quite diverse. Within driving distance, that is. And the beach out at the tip of Long Island is pretty good, if you can deal with cool water, that is.
Anyway, there's a lot of opportunity for summer activities around the northeast. But skiing in the northeast sucks. So I spend most of my vacation flying out west or across the pond to access better snow or better terrain.
I'm not too surprise to find myself in the majority of bears >75% but not 100% (not even close). Each year, I do take one week for non-skiing fun, usually to some far away land, like India or Australia!
