Yeah those are the places I am looking for lol.

not sure I would totally agree on this


Take Philly as an example in the inexpensive list, Philly which will surprise many has the highest proportion of its DT population with advanced degrees of any of the large cities in the country


Though I am struggling on where its inexpensive, if Chicago is in the moderate price I am confused why they are different price points; their main nabes are very similarly priced


Philly isn't cheap but like Chicago is much more affordable than other large dense cities

LA, Chicago, NYC, DC. LA attracts anyone who thinks they're too popular for their school and just wants to be at a beach all day and can't wear a coat or it'll ruin their outfit. Chicago attracts mostly those from the good colleges in the Midwest who just prefer Chicago over NYC for one reason over another. But a good portion of the friend groups from the Midwest split between NYC, Chicago, and LA. NYC attracts the opposites of LA; is in, those from all over who have a strong work hard play hard attitude and show no signs of slowing down. DC attracts a lot from the South who want to move North, but NYC is too "northern" for them (I don't mean it in a bad way).

Chicago you'll find the most down to earth people for sure. Not ready for a family, want to party still, but don't want to be overly concerned about their appearance in LA or work themselves to death in NYC.

Philly attracts people from the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, upper South, and parts of the eastern Midwest that are very similar to Chicago. They're big partiers, stay in shape, love their sports the same way Chicago does, but want to be in the northeast without the NYC stress.

Then there's Miami. Idk enough about the people that move there, but I'd assume it's a combo of the LA and NYC crowds.

Other cities like Atlanta and SF and Nashville do attract people. But not in the same party way. They're still not the same as those in LA, Chicago, DC, NYC and Philly IMO.

I know so many people like this. I live outside Baton Rouge and it seems at least half the bartenders I know only do it on the side. I met my new insurance agent because she bartends on the side. Several teachers I know do it. Also several bank employees and hair stylists and real estate agents. Its a fun job for them and a good way to meet people.

I want to avoid cities that are loaded with the goody two shoe types that preach family life and try to judge people for drinking and partying, this means the south and Utah are out of the question due to the religious fanatics.
You can party in the south. I'd bet some of the heaviest drinkers are in the south.

We purists consider the Big Ten to have a footprint of the seven most solidly midwestern states: MN, IA, WI, IL, IN, MI, OH. PSU, Nebraska and certainly UMD and Rutgers donít feel Big Ten
