Home to great weather and plenty of outdoor recreation, it's no surprise that many Americans considering a move have their eyes set on Colorado. One Colorado city is particularly popular among the baby boomer generation, ranking as the most desirable domestic big city to move among this age group.
A recent survey published by Cinch Home Services determined that 17.1 percent of baby boomers considering a move to one of the country's 50 most populous cities had Colorado Springs on their short list. Jacksonville, Florida and Charlotte, North Carolina were also being considered by 17.1 percent of baby boomers, rounding out to a three-way tie for the 'most desirable place to move' for those born between 1946 and 1964.
Colorado Springs performed quite well among all age groups, too. It was ranked as the 2nd most desirable place to move to overall, included on 13.7 percent of all-age could-be mover's lists, behind only Austin, which was on 13.8 percent of lists. Denver was also a popular spot, ranking 10th in the country, found on 10.8 percent of participants lists.
Crime rates, cost of living, and weather were key reasons why people surveyed were looking to move.
