  • Housing affordability

  • A community of other young couples

With “over 11,000 restaurants, 500 cultural and performing arts organizations, 40 higher-ed institutions, low unemployment, and one of the youngest populations in the nation,” the fourth-largest city, Houston, was ranked #1 on the list with the following numbers.

  • Percentage of population between 25 and 34: 15.2%
