Due to the pandemic, a lot of millennials are leaving some cities behind and are looking for new opportunities in these places.
But what are the most popular cities among millennials?
1- Columbus, Ohio
Columbus had a net migration of 2,733 individuals between the ages of 25 and 39 only in 2018.
Millennials might find this city attractive because housing costs are more reasonable there than in other large U.S. cities. A 2019 study showed that Columbus is one of the cities where renters can most easily afford to live alone.
2- Paradise, Nevada
Adjacent to Las Vegas and part of Clark County, Paradise had a net migration of around 2,800 millennials. A study shows that, actually, 4,100 millennials moved to the city in 2018, but around 1,500 individuals between the ages 30-34 moved out during the same year.
3- Phoenix, Arizona
Phoenix had a net migration of around 2,900 millennials during 2018, and most of them came from an entirely different state.
The study reveals that more than 6,500 people between 25 and 29 moved there, and around 4,300 aged 30-34- However, the net migration is lower because a considerable number of millennials also moved out of the city in the same period.
4- Nashville, Tennessee
The city received around 13,000 millennials in 2018 and the reason might be housing costs. Nashville is one of the cities where you could save the most money if you share your apartment.
5- Houston, Texas
Houston is one of the cities that had more population mobility in 2018. Specifically, around 18,550 millennials between the ages of 25 and 39 moved into the city from different states, while 15,313 within the same age gap moved out.
