Where do young people move to when they don't feel like working hard for a little while?

Some thoughts:

Missoula
San Diego

I cannot think if any big city in the US that does not have a goodly share of slackers with the possible exception of DC.

Most of those cities are now too expensive to truly "bum around" but traditionally it was SF, LA, Portland, Austin, Seattle etc.

Those would be college students. Or smokejumpers. Hardly just bumming around.

Denver to some extent. Also multiple cities in Florida, and parts of LA.

The West Coast lost this title in the last few years due to tech job growth in all of these trendy cities.

In the next few years, I see the whole "where adults go to retire" title being associated with rust belt cities. St Louis, St Paul, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, etc. These places have an insanely low COL, a thriving creative/art scene, and the bones for good solid growth. In most of these cities, you can rent a huge 5-6 bedroom house within blocks of downtown for the price of a studio in any of the other tech cities.

I see a major shift/migration back to the rust belt once we hit another recession. When people start losing their jobs, and can no longer pay $2000+ for a studio, they will be seeking out the next cool affordable city...just like how people migrated to Portland, Denver, Austin, etc during the last recession.
