11 Affordable Cities for US Millennials to Start Their Families


4. Portland, Oregon

I personally know a lot of people who rave about Oregon. Portland is a quirky place to live – perfect for hipster and hippie families who want an outrageously fun homestead. I mean, the city’s slogan is “Keep Portland Weird.”

Scattered throughout the city are microbreweries, microdistilleries, pop-up food trunks, and a number of cultural attractions for families to discover together.

Portland also has wonderful air quality and is one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the USA right now. Crime rates are low. Potential is high with an unemployment rate of 7 percent. And the median rent cost? $813.
