Best places in the nation for young people to live. - Page 6

post #76 of 82
Obviously the answer depends a lot on personal preferences (more outdoorsy stuff or preference too nightlife, preferred climate, etc.) as there are a lot of cities that are great for younger peopl to live in throughout the US (and I assume that is more where you mean).

Nonetheless, my answer would always be Atlanta (note I am biased as I grew up and still live there). I would say it is good and steadily improving in most of the key areas I consider (e.g. size of young adult population, nightlife/dining/culture options, business opportunities and growth, weather, cost of living; plus more abstract concepts, such as friendliness of people).

But depending on your preferences most of the usual suspects would be great. I work a lot in the NE right now and have some friends I visit fairly frequently in NYC and it is a wonderful city. It is particularly unmatched in nightlife and dining (IMO).

San Francisco also always seems like a great city when I visit and my friends (26/27 ish) who live there love it.

I think younger people would prefer to live inside the city, and Atlanta is one of those places where everyone lives in the burbs. I think of it as a southern Detroit: inexpensive, diverse, culturally significant, and lots to do after looking beyond the typically misunderstood facade, but terribly segregated/separated, and flattened by the suburban sprawl.

On the other hand, San Fran is a fantastic city, although a bit pricey.

anyone have any exp in Phoenix, Arizona? it looks like i will be getting a job offer out there. I have lived in my DC my whole life so moving there would be a def change of pace. Actually the job in located in Chandler, a suburb of phoenix.... the weather is nice (except the summer) but what about otherwise nightlife? stuff to do...etc.

The legal markets in all those cities are pretty marginal. Without doing any research, you are looking at NY, DC, Chicago, SF, or LA. Maybe Boston, Atlanta and Dallas.

Sorry, wasn't aware he/she is looking for jobs in the legal markets. In that case, I would say NYC, DC and Chicago have probably the biggest legal market in the US. I have friends at law schools in both NYC and DC, and the # of jobs available for them at different firms is pretty incredible compared to other cities.
