Looking for a new home?

Whether you want to live like a rock star or a cowboy, there is a town in America to suit everyone's taste.

Wannabe cowboys should head to Casper, Wyo. Urbanites with a green thumb and a desire to start an organic garden should settle down in Red Hook, in the mid-Hudson Valley in New York.

Fairfax, Calif., is the place to pursue the suburban ideal and Nashville is the city for aspiring music stars, according to the magazine Men's Journal.

But if you want to keep a boat near New York City, look no further than Red Bank, N.J.

For anyone looking to buy someone else's dream home, Las Vegas housing prices have nosedived 50 per cent and recently built homes can be a bargain at $100 per square foot.
