Definitely...Perhaps Rochester NY and Tulsa as well. There's Albuquerque and Tucson too.

Without a doubt! My wife and I have strongly considered moving to the area multiple times, and it's still possible we do towards fall of 2018! It's a great place

I wouldn't call Richmond or Nashville cheap. They're not New York or San Francisco, but they both have cost-of-living comparable to bigger cities with more amenities.

Eureka/Arcata will never be booming.

There is absolutely no job market there unless you're able to work from home. No good healthcare options, and overall is a depressing place. Most areas are dilapidated from the economic downfall in that area, and it will never rise again.

Can't believe Oklahoma City is a choice. You can still get life in prison for marijuana there. No way will it boom with younger people.

That changed in July. Marijuana possession is now a misdemeanor. Still, Oklahoma City is the antithesis of everything cool and desirable in 2017. It is cheap but is cheap for a reason. It is attracting a decent amount of young aspiring real estate developers however who couldn't make it in other markets.

As per this thread >Where millennials are moving to< OKC's 20-34 age bracket has increased 25.8% from 2000-2015, and increased 7.6% from 2010-2015. OKC is doing quite well with younger people.

And as I pointed out in that thread, all Oklahoma City needed to increase its 18 to 34-year-old population in that timeframe is for the number of 3-19 year-olds to outnumber 18-34 year olds in the year 2000. Generation X are a much smaller generation than millennials, so City could increase its 18 to 34 population in that timeframe without a single millennial moving into the city.
