How is Huntington,wv- the cost of living is pretty low there.
Do they have any really low cost Apartments, or Motels there in Huntington.
I will be moving there in July, or so. and is there much work to be found there.
Any info on the city of Huntington would be great ,thanks.
Huntington is a great city with a lot to do. We have great parks, great restaurants and good availability of entertainment and the job market is improving with some local companies expanding along with growth in the local healthcare industry. I can't really speak of the cost of rentals or their quality as I have never used them being from the area. With regards to the comment on drugs, unfortunately, what area doesn't have drugs in some aspect of the community this day and age? Huntington has made huge strides in this area though and Charleston is actually looking to implement the program that Huntington followed as it was so successful.

Here are some links to that you may find useful. The first one is for the rental magazine and the soncd is the jobs listings for the local newspaper. Hope this helps and I'll post some more links when able.

Yes, in various terms. I am proud of where I live and think it has a lot to offer. I also have a lot of pride in my state, I just happen to know more about my little corner.

In my opinion, it's a shame to live in an area and not know why you want to live there or what's going on. I live by the attitude of be proud of where you live and don't take it for granted. You are where you are for a reason so make the most of it.

Plus, that's why these forums are here is to be helpful when questions are asked.

The absolute cheapest will be the absolute isolated areas. Settling on some place real cheap and then having to commute for an hour to a $10 an hour job isn't going to get you anywhere.

Honestly, West Virginia isn't a cheap state to live like most people assume. Jobs are hard to find due to outsourcing.

Morgantown is probably the best WV has to offer and it is expensive. If you do mind living in rural areas, Huntington would be your best bet as the cheapest city to live.

Although WV is beautiful with natural scenery, there isn't much to do in the state. Being born and bred in the state, I am so ready to leave for either Atlanta, GA or Washington, D.C. upon my graduation from WVU in two months.

Cheaper? Probably the better query to conduct is - which city/region of WV has the best quality of life - and why?

Whenever I see one of these thread titles where someone wants to live in the cheapest, most rock-bottom of places - I think of dollar-store, chinese-made tools.

In other words.....you'll prolly be sorry later
