While college grads may dream of moving to a big city and getting a great job, Time is reporting that places like New York and Los Angeles are not the best places for millennials to move to. “With costs of living far beyond what most Americans can afford—and projected job growth below average for big U.S. cities—it’s hard to make the case that either the Big Apple or City of Angels offers young people the easiest living or the best shot at success,” writes Susie Poppick.
The magazine has come up with a list of the top cities for millennials, focusing on above-average job growth; affordable food, rent, and essentials; and a high concentration of amenities like grocery stores. The five cities also have lots of bars, restaurants, and leisure activities that are popular among 20- to 34-year-olds. So where should you move if you’re just out of college and ready to take the career world by storm? Here is Time’s list of the five best places for millenials to live.
- Austin, Texas
- Columbus, Ohio
- Tucson, Arizona
