Heh. So much for Las Vegas.

Have you looked at Salt Lake City, Boise, and Minneapolis-St. Paul? Not sure where you could find a cheap apartment in a big city area that has a decent economy. If you're blue collar you might also consider Wyoming though the apartments won't be that cheap but it does have jobs.

What kinds of things do you like to do, and what kind of job would you be hoping to get?

NC/SC would be good choices, but as one poster asked, what are your job skills?

Sorry to hear that you "Can't Take It Any More" Here in L.V. I would suggest that you might want to check out the following locales: Boise Idaho, Portland Oregon, Madison Wisconsin, Austin Texas, Colorado Springs Colorado, possibly St. George/Cedar City Utah. Rapid City South Dakota is a real awesome place, but not a booming econcomy. Same for Cheyenne Wyoming. Since you are from the East Coast, what about Portland or Bangor Maine. or maybe Nashua New Hamshire. And one more suggestion>Beautifull, Magical La Crosse Wisconsin, right on the Mississippi River. Good Luck finding a place you like. Vegas can be a "Downer" at times-I know that.

Austin, TX
Dallas, TX
Houston, TX
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
Madison, WI
Denver, CO
Des Moines, IA

I could go on and on. There are plenty of great US cities to chose from where it's still affordable. I listed a few but there's many more. It would help if you give us some more criteria.

I'd recommend some cheaper medium-sized cities in the Rust Belt that are resisting the housing market nosedive and are showing modest gains in that department. The following cities are also just starting to "rebound" after many decades of decline. All have relatively-low crime rates (outside of a few pockets), temperate climates (four seasons of different weather), and are within a few hours of major U.S. cities for better cultural/shopping opportunities. Their economies aren't "booming", but they're all expected to show growth over the next decade. People in all of these areas are also more "down-to-earth" than you'll find in many other places in this nation.

Albany/Schenectady/Troy, NY
Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton, PA
Binghamton, NY
Harrisburg, PA
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA
