The Best Moves for Millennials
Atlanta
At Thrillist, we love big cities, but we also recognize the appeal of smaller towns with the same mix of great food, nightlife, and culture – plus a lower cost of living. That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Association of Realtors® on a content series highlighting the best suburbs of nine major cities, perfect for young urbanites who may be looking to buy a home. And when it’s time to start house hunting, check out HouseLogic.com, from NAR, for buying and selling advice to help you navigate loan options, bidding wars, and everything else it takes to close the deal. Dream home, here you come.
If you live in a big city, it can be hard to remember life before everything was at your fingertips. (Or if you’re a born-and-raised city kid, it’s downright unfathomable). Your block has restaurants serving five different types of cuisine, there’s an impossibly hip new cocktail bar opening every week, and you haven’t driven a car in years. Plus, all your friends are just a quick train or taxi ride away.

Years of city-living, though, can leave you longing for a slower pace and surroundings that include a few more trees. Continuously handing over half your paycheck to your landlord for a cramped one-bedroom starts to get old when you think about how that amount could buy you a entire house somewhere else. If you’ve got kids or want them, well, eventually they’re going to need their own bedroom.

The “suburbs” used to be considered a dirty word among urban loyalists, but as metro areas expand, the livability of suburban cities has skyrocketed. No longer does the move to the ’burbs have to mean trading your city that never sleeps for a sleepy bedroom community. We scoured nine US markets for the best places to relocate that include towns with Top Chef-helmed restaurants, craft breweries, major sports teams, world-class art museums, and always-rocking music venues. There’s enough cultural caché to these satellite cities to keep even the staunchest urban-dweller happy.
