Craigslist or checking realtor.com for rentals would be your best choices in my opinion. Few people know that you can find rentals on realtor.com. Realtor.com will show rentals that are listed by Realtors and there are very little, if any, fraudulent entries. Craigslist, as well as other sites, you have to be very careful and do your due diligence before providing a potential landlord with any of your personal information. In either case, make certain that the landlord is the actual owner of the property and the property is not in default before handing over your hard earned cash. Stay well away from any rent-to-own or lease-to-own scenarios where the "owner" may ask for a large deposit or increased rent in exchange for future equity or ownership opportunity. MANY of those are very shady at best. Good luck in your search!
