So you are a millennial and tired of living in the same city all your life? Well there is no perfect city in the world and every place has its drawbacks but what if you could know the answer to this age-old question? Well, Nestpick has done the homework for you and assessed over 110 cities in the entire world to choose the best place to live in.
These places were assessed on various fronts like education, availability of work, transport, healthcare, and other factors. However, since the millennial generation is concerned nightlife options, food, festivals and LGBTQ tolerance were also considered. It was also learned that some of the cities that would have emerged on the top otherwise weren’t tolerant of immigrants, religious choices and sexual preferences.
Berlin came out to be on top of this list with a total score of 7.14 out of 10 courtesy its LGBT friendly society and innumerous music festivals and nightclubs. It also had an off the charts Startup Score of 9.0 which made it one of the preferred cities for this generation. Cologne was the second German city to feature in the top 10 coming in at 9th place.
Surprisingly, Canada’s three major cities made it to the top 10 – Montreal at the 2nd spot, Toronto at 5th and Vancouver at the 6th. While Vancouver had an outstanding Employment Score of 8.5, it scored poorly when it came to cost of living courtesy high home rents. Montreal scored a 6.4 on housing and an 8.1 for Startup rate, thus securing it’s the 2nd position of 110 cities.
London and Manchester were the only countries from the United Kingdom to make an appearance on the top 10. London was placed 3rd while Manchester just managed the 10th spot. London’s third spot was secured owing to High Immigration Tolerance, Transport, and Tourism. However, a housing score of 0.5 sheds light at the meteorically high cost of renting a home.
What truly surprised us is that only one city from the United States managed to secure a place on the list. New York managed a 6.25 against Amsterdam’s 6.67 both securing 8th and 4th place respectively. Food, Shelter, and Health seemed to be the biggest problems for the American city. Apparently, the substantial cost of food in New York City helped it score only 0.6 out of 10.
