A recent study shows that the nation’s capital is a great place for young adults, and not just because of the city’s many kickball leagues.
According to The Business Journals, D.C. ranks behind Austin, Texas, and San Jose, California, as the third best city for people between the ages of 18 to 34.
The Business Journals also ranked U.S. cities by geography.
In the East, the publication found that D.C. is the best city for young adults — Boston came in second, then New York City, followed by Baltimore then Pittsburgh.
Here are the rankings for cities in the South:
3. Durham, N.C.
4. Oklahoma City
1. Des Moines, Iowa
2. Madison, Wis.
5. Minneapolis-St. Paul
And the West:
1. San Jose
3. San Francisco-Oakland
5. Salt Lake City
The rankings took into consideration factors such as population growth and cost of living of all American cities with a population over 500,000.
