I can relocate anywhere I want but where do I go? I have researched so many cities and still confused. I want to make the right choice. I am middle aged from Ky and very burntout on being here. I have traveled around the U.S and know there are better cities out there. I lead a very simple laid back life. I am used to working lower paying jobs. I do not have a college degree.I am trying to find a place with jobs in the hospitality industry . I also need cheap rent. I have considered Tx,Montana,OK .I would really like to move to Vegas but with the economy I am afraid to move there. I would appreciate any feedback on what I should do.

Well, I don't know how "laid back" you would find Las Vegas(having lived there 13 yrs myself), and I don't know how your current finances are in regards to holding you over for the length of time you may need to find employment(unless you can transfer with your current job), but, if LV is what you would like to try, go for it!! Not the cheapest rent there however, but not too bad.

You may get better suggestions if you would say just what your likes and dislikes are, hobbies, stuff like that.

Well, maybe some better advice is:

Look at the various state job service websites and see where hospitality industry jobs are hiring right now. Every state has a website which lists job openings in the state.

Then do some research on the main City-Data website about those cities and towns where the hospitality jobs that interest you are located. Look at cost of housing/cost of living in particular. You may also be interested in things like the dominant religions or ethnic groups or educational background of the people in those locations.

Then come to the City-Data state forums and post questions about the cities and towns where you have read about jobs. If you ask some specific questions about some specific places you'll probably get some good advice.

Then take some vacation time and visit a few of the places that interest you.

Many of us understand your urge to move. But it's best to do a little bit of research first, so that you know you have a good chance of being happy about your move.

You could move to Las Vegas and make it. Rent it actually pretty cheap. We were just there in June and stayed at a hotel 10 miles from the strip. There was an apartment building across the street that had a 2-bedroom advertised for $550/month. Hot at heck in the summer, but I'm sure you could get a job somewhere there. Good luck to you!

I've been researching Greenville, SC lately. They have all that stuff. Tons of thrift stores which I love too. The cost of living is low as well. There are tons and tons of places to eat.

Have you visited there?
