I have made the same research before moving from Europe to USA recently.
I have chosen Columbus (the third affordable on my list after Oklahoma City and Cincinnati). I rent 1 bedroom in good neighborhood for 400 usd plus 25 for electricity.

Omaha, Nebraska is almost 1 million now, and combined with Lincoln 90 mi away is about 1 mil. Cheaper housing than Denver, I keep hearing from my relatives there. Frankly, housing in Denver isn't bad. My DD has a 2 BR apt near the U of Denver for $650/mo. It's quite nice for a single or a couple of young people.

EW, St. Cloud is terrible and as soon as I can I am leaving. Minneapolis is beautiful and really nice and has some really cool areas. Sure its overall more expensive then St. Cloud, but its so much bigger and has so much more to offer.

Besides, St. Cloud has nowhere near a million people, it only has around 65,000.

Usually the cities more inland and far away from desirable areas and climates are cheaper. For its size I believe Indianapolis is the cheapest metropolitan area in the country. I found a studio apartment for under $400 in Indy. It wasn't downtown, but it was only a few miles away.

No where that's remotely desirable, that's for sure.

I agree that most low COL cities are that way for a reason, there are a few that are desirable and cheap. Austin and Portland come to mind. The Twin Cities as well. Even Chicago, though more expensive, is cheap for what you get.
