Seattle, known as the Emerald City, is America’s most desired destination for college graduates, according to the 2022 Axios-Generation Lab Next Cities Index, which tracks rising U.S. work and culture trends through geographic preferences. Axios cites the city’s “superstar tech hub status, cool climate, green-energy embrace and music and art scene” in helping it compete with destinations such as New York, L.A., Denver and Boston.
“It feels like a young-person city,” Riley Harbick, a computer science major and senior at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA told Axios. He said he wants to move to Seattle when he graduates. Half of the survey’s 2,109 respondents want to live outside of their home states after graduation; about one in four want to live in their hometowns. The top five wish list, according to Axios, is Seattle, New York City, Los Angeles, Denver and Boston.
