I think raw percentage of the population that are Millennials isn't a great proxy for which cities (educated?) Millennials are choosing to move to.

At a quick glance, a lot of the cities in the high-Millennial list just have large Latino populations and therefore higher birth rates (El Paso, Fresno), have large LDS populations and even higher birth rates (Provo, SLC), have a large military presence (San Diego, VA Beach), or are geographically secluded (Honolulu) or poor (Baton Rouge, Bakersfield) and thus make it hard to escape them.

There are a lot of differing various articles and click-bait websites of where millennials are moving and who has the highest percentage.

Correct regarding the bolded cities above. Both also attract a lot of young newly married Mormon couples, return Mormon missionaries, and already have a rather large population of M's because of the large families and high birth rates.

Colorado Springs also has a large military presence. Madison, WI has a large grad-student presence, although the Mills are growing out of the grad-student phase of life now. I note that with the exception of LA and San Diego, the top 15 are all smaller MSAs as well.

Depends on the definition of large. Colo Spgs active duty military is only 7% of El Paso county's total population. Larger than most, but small than many other areas with military bases. Colo Spgs is also home the the fastest growing university in CO and houses nearly all Olympic sports governing body headquarters and associated sports medicine and training facilities.
