You might want to try and tell that to the 233,000 people living in Madison, of which the average age is 31 and where half the population is between 18 and 44.

Madison is a big college town. A lot of those young people are students. No offense, but young people aren't flocking to Madison from around the country lol. They're going to places like Phoenix, Austin, Dallas, California, Florida, etc. etc.

Most young people (or people in general) would rather live in Phoenix than Wisconsin. Look how many people moved there or are moving there. Obviously has a big draw and weather plays a large role in that.

College is a large part of the reason why Madison has a lot more than its population would otherwise suggest. It's smaller, but it's grown at a pretty good pace from domestic migration. Phoenix is more about middle-aged people outpriced from California, snowbirds/retirees, and economic migrants from Latin America isn't it? Phoenix sort of blows.

Phoenix is sort of everybody. There's a lot of young people there enjoying the big-time nightlife, restaurants, professional sports etc. I don't think your assessment is fully correct. I bet a lot more migrants are heading to CA then AZ. It's got a ton going for it other then being inexpensive. Price might be a big factor for many, but people move there for different reasons.

The only Minnesotans who move to Phoenix are angry old people and right wing nutjobs. You can have them. I have to admit I've never been there. My opinion of it is based entirely on my opinion of the people I know who like it (who are all horrible people).
