Seattle, Austin, and Portland, are hip and trendy cities that seem to attract a lot of young people.

I've been interested with seattle, san diego, atlanta, denver, dallas, and some others

on a scale of 1-10, how expensive is it to live in these cities?
in the suburbs?

be sure to specify what city you're talking about

Some cities that I'd consider to be good for those to start out in:

Austin, TX
Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
Denver, CO
San Francisco, CA
Portland, OR
Couldn't disagree more about D.C. I lived there. Tons of college age and post college aged kids. Tons of young professionals in D.C. and in close in Nova and MD. .....Very comparable to Boston in the college post college age regard. Very high 20 something population in D.C.

Seattle and San Diego are very expensive. However, as a single young adult you can rent and do okay in some areas and enjoy yourself for a few years, but buying is ridiculously expensive.

Atlanta, Denver, And Dallas are much cheaper, very affordable. You have many different types of places in your list.

San Diego is the smallest on your list. Then Seattle next biggest.

Denver is probably growing the fastest and most. Generally speaking, the South is much cheaper than other areas in the country.

Portland is real hip for hippies. No one REALLY confuses it with Seattle.
