Some food for thought:
There are jobs and there are careers.
A career quite often is the result of a longer term mutual relationship between you and your employer. That's not to say that a career-type position that is a shorter-term gig of a couple of years wouldn't provide similar flexibility to play.

I think the key is the type of benefits an employer provides
There are two possible routes to consider;
1) Work for a company that provides a quality benefits package where a first year employee receives 2 or 3 weeks vacation plus personal days
2) Work for yourself--sales, consultant, etc

I think you will find once you transition into your career, your hobbies will take a back seat to work.
Work is called work for a reason. Good news is most weekends (depending on the position) are for fun.

If you need assistance with specific career ideas, Princeton Review has a terrific website with careers choices. http://www.princetonreview.com/careers-after-college.aspx
Best of luck.
