As DesertJazz mentioned, consider the smaller rural schools. I'm retired now, but I spent my first 21 years in 3 very cushy large suburban school districts (middle school level) and made a jump to a small 1C/3A position (head middle school director, assisted some at the high school) and absolutely loved it. I spent the rest of my career there, my last 12 years there, and never regretted it one bit.
I personally and professionally found the freedom to run my band program the way I wanted in the small rural school setting so liberating and exciting.
But you have to be prepared for one important fact that is more likely in that smaller school setting: You are likely to reap more of what you sew.
In other words, you're more likely to earn all the credit or all the blame. It's really what you make of it.
