GREATER DES MOINES, IA – Greater Des Moines (DSM) is the #1 Best Place for Millennials to Live in the Midwest and the #4 Best Place for Millennials to Live in the United States, according to a study completed by Growella, a money, career and life advice website. 


The ranking measures how many entry-level jobs are available, how much time is spent commuting, public transportation options, how many young people live in the region, after-work and weekend activities and cost of living. Growella used data from more than 70 public resources to build an algorithm to show the best places nationwide for millennials to live.


“DSM has earned a strong national reputation as a top city for young professionals,” said Greater Des Moines Partnership CEO Jay Byers. “These metrics further validate that our region is a vibrant, affordable place for young people to live and work.”
