I'd think one of the 4 Texas cities would be.

Eh. I really don't think all millenials want that. I think that's just the perception.

Scottsdale is nice. It has some beautiful people and fun things to do. I always have fun when I go there...but I'm ready to get back to LA after about 2 days.

Phoenix is like a less pretentious LA

Millennials want more pretentious

Most of non-coastal California is undeveloped or has plenty of room to expand, particularly the northeast. You would have to trade in the mega-urban experience of LA though if you lived there.

To me, that sounds like a more attractive option than the southwest US, because I don't know that climate change is going to be nice to that area and the mountain west a prettier area geographically. But if a person's not outdoorsy, then it's just the nearest big cities (Pheonix Austin Dallas...)

The climate change as it regards rainfall mainly seems focused on the winter season. But Phoenix has another rainfall peak during summer with the monsoon, which could actually get enhanced as things go on.

Default millennials

Austin, Denver....not unless your a liberal!

From what I've read, Millennials are moving to Wyoming and Montana, it will depend what you want out of life. I actually saw a documentary recently on TV where a few Millennials built a home off the grid, loved every minute of it, they pulled up lawn chairs and said 'This is ours!, We built this ourselves."

I wouldn't move to Austin nor Denver, not much different than California big cities. Some are moving to places like Iowa, you can find cheap housing, life is simple, you get to know your neighbors, and its community. But it does snow and get cold in the winter.

I suggest you find better sources. Or at least sources not reinforcing your own narrow viewpoint. I'm sure Montana and Wyoming relocation guides will tell you hoards are moving in. Of course any population moving to either state is quite relative considering their tiny populations.

For the record, this Millennial moved OUT of Montana a few years ago.

Oh, well that's good news to hear! I had seen that it was drying out, but if that's only winter that's different. A wetter AZ is a better AZ. Most places seem to be getting a little wetter with climate change which is a good.

Yeah, the summer monsoons in AZ are awesome a nice relief from the dry SoCal summers. It's like as soon as you cross the border the rain stops, and gas prices rice. Gotta Love CA
