The 20 best cities for 20-somethings


When we released last year’s list of the top 20 cities for 20-somethings, some readers were pleased and some were less so. We were looking for ultra-cool spots where young adults could find jobs they love, unwind at happy hours, join sports leagues, and make new pals.

This year we’ve updated that list, and many of the cities you suggested met our new criteria. In general, it’s hard to pinpoint what qualities 20-somethings go for in picking the perfect city.

There are common factors such as cleanliness, park space, and efficient transit systems, but this year we expanded our scope: Does a city provide ethnic and cultural diversity? Can you walk in peace or are the streets packed with cars?

We compiled this year’s list taking into account as many factors as we could to bring you the most accurate list of healthy cities for 20-somethings.

Click on the gallery (top left) for the top 10 picks for 2013. Go to Greatist.com for the full list of 20 best cities for 20-somethings.

D.L. Stewart: The circus is leaving town … finally

News that the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus will fold its big top forever this May brought back a flood of happy, smiling memories for me. Ok, maybe not a flood, exactly. More like a droplet. In fact, my ONLY happy, smiling circus memory is from when I took my daughter to see one when she was six or seven years old. As the circus began...

Frostbite danger: Late treatment can lead to permanent damage

Red cheeks and tingling fingers shouldn’t be considered a normal part of time spent outside on a frigid, winter day. Instead, these should be thought of as the beginning signs of something potentially dangerous. “Frostbite is a real condition that can be a threat to anyone who spends extended periods of time outdoors in cold weather,&rdquo...
