In your opinion where's the next hot spot or boom town for young folks, college grads?

In the early 90's we saw Seattle then Austin take off. Seems like everyone I knew moved to Phoenix in the mid 90's. Then Atlanta. In the 2000's Brooklyn was the place to be. I'm sure I've forgot a few places..Vegas was hot for a minute, Portland Oregon too.

Have we have cycled back to Seattle again? Austin still seems hot. Places like NYC, Boston, Chicago will always be a draw.

So what do you think?

Pittsburgh. The swelling white-collar job market and dirt-cheap (for now) real estate is a solid combination for fresh grads.

Get in on the ground floor while you can. The price run-up has already started in the East End and South Side Flats/Slopes.

Baltimore: Location, location, location. If the NE Corridor high speed rail ever takes off then its a guarantee.

Minneapolis / St. Paul -- good schools, lower cost of living, very strong economy, lots of good restaurants. if it wasn't for the winters, it would have been THE spot for all the young people.

Vegas was pitched as the Promised Land when I graduated from college in 2005.

Baltimore and Pittsburgh seem like good bets. Basically somewhere interesting but also cheap.
