Charleston, SC: Millennials Can Afford to Live Here, and Actually Want to

Charleston, SC: Millennials Can Afford to Live Here, and Actually Want to

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 30, 2018

Abberly at West Ashley Apartments, Charleston, SCForget San Francisco, Washington D.C. and New York City.

There are cities where twenty- and thirty-somethings who can’t afford to spend $2,500 can and want to live.

The Penny Hoarder has developed a definitive list of the top 25 coolest and most affordable cities for millennials. It’s based on a rigorous analysis of housing and local price data, economic statistics and something called a Coffee Fanatic Score. Yes, you read that right.

You probably haven’t seen many of these cities on “Top Millennial City” lists before, and that’s for good reason.

These are cities where young people crippled with student loan debt can actually find work and afford a one-bedroom apartment, but also find a new brewery or wine bar on weekends. Their millennial populations are growing — or already sizable — and they tend to be better for walking or biking to work.

No. 13 — Charleston, South Carolina

  • Affordability Rank: 17
  • Millennial Happiness Rank: 15
  • Economy Health Rank: 10

Things to do: Charleston has a good balance of nightlife, food and the outdoors. King Street is the go-to place for brunch, shopping and bars and restaurants. Revelry Brewing Co. is a highlight of the ubiquitous beer scene. (Did we mention millennials like beer?) And, as with any millennial-friendly city, there’s a farmers market.
