When it comes to their perfect city, a majority of millennials want a thriving job market, affordable rent and home prices, lots of parks and hiking trails, non-chain restaurants and, of all things, quality pizza.


So say the folks at apartment rental company Abodo, which recently released the results of a survey that shows which U.S. cities are most ideal to millennials. Coming in at No. 4 on the list: Portland.


A new survey from Abodo found that millennials rank Portland among the top four most desirable cities in the entire country, in part because of its thriving job scene.Enlarge

Adobo surveyed 2,000 millennials in its survey and found that much of what those born between 1982 and 1998 find attractive in cities can be found right here in Portland. In addition to a hot job scene and (relatively) affordable rent, other most-desired features in a city included movie theaters, top-notch public schools, walkability, ethnic food and sustainability. The survey identified 20 attractive qualities in all, and while Portland has about 90 percent of the qualities most attractive to millennials, it does lack a few. Among those: highly-rated public schools and walkability.


Topping Portland in the study were Seattle, San Francisco and, at the No. 1 slot, New York City.
