It's time to make some moves.

If you're looking to move someplace adventurous but aren't quite ready to settle down and buy a house, then it's time to choose a great new city where apartment rent happens to be cheap. 

And whoa, do we have a some stellar options for you.

Real estate site Housely recently did some research on large U.S. cities (aka cities with more than 200,000 residents) with the cheapest apartment rents. They used data from search engine RentJungle, which updates a database of more than 700,000 listings daily to draw conclusions about rental trends over time. 

The Housely findings reveal good news: Many of our favorite under-the-radar cities to visit are also incredibly affordable to live in (Hellooo, Richmond), along with some unexpected picks that are spectacular, too (Hey Las Vegas!).  If you feel like making a move, then it just may be time to make one of these cities your new home.
