Forbes Thinks All Millennials Should Move To These 10 Cities

Forbes Thinks All Millennials Should Move To These 10 Cities

No matter where you’re living, there are probably a few criteria you’ll want from your environment in order to be happy with your location. Having plenty of other people your age around, affordable rent, and places to get a burger and a margarita that aren’t called Chili’s are pretty important to all-around happiness. If those criteria aren’t met, it may be time to make a move, because honestly, if you don’t have a specialty bar for your Friday night happy hours, how can you ever reach trip-digit likes on your Instagram?

Company Niche set out to find the best all-around cities for the millennial generation, based on stats such as unemployment rate, percentage of millennials in the area and amount of young people moving into the area, the ever-important median rent, and of course the proximity of the location to coffee, food, and beverage establishments. If you’re currently in the market to make a move, these ten cities may be worth taking a look at.

10. Austin, Texas
9. Washington, DC
8. Denver, Colorado
7. Seattle, Washington
6. Minneapolis, Minnesota
5. Ann Arbor, Michigan
4. San Francisco, California
3. Alexandria, Virginia
2. Arlington, Virginia
1. Cambridge, Massachusetts

Thanks to Niche’s analysis of Census data, we have further confirmation of what we’ve already known all along – our favorite places to live are mid-sized to large cities with tons of character, things to do, and specialty bars to get trashed on $13 drinks handcrafted by mixologists. Some are near the coast, most have great weather, and all are full of local and unique restaurant concepts. While my city isn’t on here, I’d be more than happy to relocate to most, if not all, of these cities in a heartbeat. In the meantime, it looks like I have my next set of vacation goals for my next 10 food vacations.
