I guess cheap would be no more than $700 per a room.

It depends on where you want to go or other factors you are looking for.

With this said, for the city you are interested in, something like this may help answer your question: Apartments and Rentals - Find a Walkable Place to Live

Do you want a walkable area? Some mid sized Midwestern and a couple Southern cities meet that criteria. The Highlands area in Louisville KY would be worth a look. 30+ bars located along a 3 mile urban corridor (with lots of other shops and restaurants), near a large top notch urban park, and in a low crime area. I would say $600 to $700 would get a pretty nice one bedroom apt, you could go cheaper or much higher than that as well

I was thinking maybe some of the Interior Northeastern cities such as the Tipperary Hill neighborhood of Syracuse or parts of the Southeastern Quadrant of Rochester. As mentioned above, some Midwestern and even Southern cities could work. It may also depend on city size too.

Most cities/towns will have a downtown area that has apartments and taverns, etc. In other words, is walkable. Most are less expensive because so many downtown areas are less desirable. The really nice ones will usually be more expensive.

You need to narrow down what you're looking for - beach, mountains, desert, snow, no snow, college town, town with an industry where you can get jobs...

You need a priority list, to be able to narrow down your options.

Does this mean $700 per room? You can easily find this in A LOT of desirable places of many cities if you get someone to share a 2-bedroom or a few people to share 3/4 bedroom apartments.

If you're strictly seeking a 1-bedroom for $700 then it becomes much tougher. In Jacksonville you can pull that off in an above garage unit in Riverside or a crappy condo complex in downtown. Springfield would have options too but the nightlife scores maybe a 3/10 there. At the beaches, San Marco, or St Johns Town Center you'd have to get a roommate to make it work.
