Forbes Ranks San Antonio as #1 City of Influence
San Antonio nabbed the top spot in a recent poll by Forbes.com of 18-34 year olds that analyzed what millenials are looking for in cities and what they’re finding, particularly in the Southwest. With population trending upwards across the Southwest, it’s no wonder we’re the focus of so much attention – from California to Arizona, New Mexico to Texas, the news has been pushing the Southwest as the new destination for young job-seeking creatives looking for the next big thing.
Of the various open-ended questions Forbes asked participants, a common thread was found in all of the top cities – they have young populations, they are multi-cultural and diverse, and they are affordable. With San Antonio’s Decade of Downtown and SA2020 initiatives, it’s no wonder millenials (and others) are seeing the benefits of a city like ours. Hopefully, we’ll continue building new, higher-paying jobs for those attracted to our area (studies have suggested we lack in this category) and can make San Antonio a world class city, worthy of its ranking as the seventh largest city in the United States.
