New Orleans Named One of Top U.S. Cities for Millennials

By: Michael Fulkerson

Big cities like New York and Washington DC have always attracted young people looking to get their start. But recently, factors such as rising real-estate prices and high job competition have sent millennials searching for other places around the country to call their home.

Business Insider decided to compile a list of 11 cities and towns that millennials have moved to in droves over the past few years (namely 2010-2015), using data from personal finance company SmartAsset, real-estate analytics firm RCLCO, and mortgage software firm Ellie Mae.

New Orleans was named as one of the top cities in the list with Business Insider citing that New Orleans’ millennial population grew by more than 5,000 people from 2010 to 2015, an increase of 8.5%, according to RCLCO.
Other cities on the list included Charlotte, North Carolina; Seattle, Washington; Oakland, California; Norfolk-Virginia Beach, Virginia; Fargo, North Dakota; Memphis, Tennessee; Austin, Texas; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Athens, Ohio and Owensboro, Kentucky.
