“The rest of the nation has caught on to what local residents have known for years: Colorado Springs is a great place for young adults to live.
Millennials are moving to Colorado Springs at a higher rate than anywhere else in the country, a newly-released study shows.
Though many believe Colorado Springs can’t attract — or keep — millennials, that hasn’t been true for years, said Dirk Draper, president of the Colorado Springs Chamber and Economic Development Corporation.” – OutThereColorado
Colorado Springs boasts decent proximity to the mountains and traveling on Hwy 24 to Breckenridge, Copper, or Ski Cooper is a lot less stressful than driving on I-70 to just about anywhere. That’s a fact. But to say that millennials should be ‘flocking’ to the area is not proof of a hidden gem but rather proof that millennials are just plain stupid.
Colorado Springs is not, I repeat not– a cool town. A good place to raise a family? Most definitely. A good place to find a consistently good paying job? Also definitely.
But millenials are opposite of the atomic family. Right? Don’t they want to switch jobs, sexual partners, and residences faster than they can upload a stupid boomerang to their Instagram story.
Then why are they moving to the most white-bread town in America? But then it came to me– Being a millenial myself, I realized we have an insatiable thirst to “hispterify” everything and anything in our range of vision. And what place could possibly be in need of “hispterification” than C-Springs?
All of a sudden, there’s gonna be dank coffee everywhere, tapas restaurants, and maybe a new music venue. But still, who wants to do all that work? Millenials that’s who. And that’s why we’re the dumbest generation. Just going around hipsterifying everything.
