WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A city in the Piedmont Triad made a recent list of the best cities in America for people under 35.
Vocativ.com ranked Winston-Salem number 22 on the top 35 list, citing affordable housing and booming medical and technology fields.
The website wrote the following about Winston-Salem:
“You can grab a bite and hit the town on 4th Street, head to Krankies Coffee for a concert, see an indie flick at A/perture Cinema or check out the arts district downtown. Winston-Salem’s also a terrific family and retirement community, so you could move there for the cheap cost of living, end up falling in love and remain a Winston-Salemite for life.”
The “Livability Index” was created for the “young, ethnically diverse, overwhelmingly single and saddled with student loans.” The list was compiled by looking at data measuring statistics including salary and employment rates.
New York City took the number one spot, followed by Arlington, Texas and San Francisco, Calif.
Winston-Salem was the highest ranking city in North Carolina, but Charlotte was listed at number 30, followed by Raleigh at 31.
