December 8, 2016

Alexandria, Va., and Arlington, Va., ranked first and second in a SmartAsset study of the best cities for Millennials to live. The study looked at a number of factors including the poverty and unemployment rates among Millennials; the number of arts, entertainment, and recreation establishments per 10,000 residents; the number of bars and restaurants per 10,000 residents; the violent and property crime rates; and the percentage of the population which falls into the Millennial generation.
