Help me find a suitable bike

Help me pick a bicycle. I'm currently riding a bmx'er with 20" wheels. My days of jumping over stuff and doing table tops are over. I need a really good multi-purpose bike.

I've seen older guys riding hybrid bikes that have pretty high rising handlebar stems and high seat posts. The bikes look really utilitarian-it seems that I could ride wheelies and jump a little bit but ride comfortably the rest of the time as well as keep up with the kids and wife.
Where can I find this style bike? Is it marketed to older folks? I've checked with TREK and other companies but I'm not finding what I see in the field. Perhaps these bikes are just customized?
