According to a recent study by smartasset Newport News, Norfolk and Virginia Beach are three of the top ten cities millennials are moving to. Newport News came in at #6, followed by Norfolk and Virginia Beach at 9th and 10th.
The study said that Newport News was the second smallest city in the top ten, and that the number of millennials in the area jumped up by 5,667 because of 11,664 immigrating millennials and 5,997 emigrating millennials. The net influx of millennials is equal to over 3 percent of the city’s population.
The study also ranked what states millennials are moving to, and Virginia finished at #4.
I can see why people are moving to Norfolk and Virginia Beach. The amount of jobs here are pretty good. And you get to live by the water without spending an arm and a leg. But Newport News... Really? Newport News?!? As someone that's from Newport News I would not have pegged that as a city millennials are flocking to.
What do YOU think? Do you believe this "study"? Do you believe someone made a mistake? Let me know!
