If you're a twentysomething, Nebraska is the third-best state to live in, says a new study.
The study, from finance site MoneyRates.com, admits calling "flyover country" a youth mecca might seem a bit bizarre, but hear them out.
"A young adult starting out today" reads the study, "would benefit from a place with plenty of opportunity, reasonable living costs and just enough lifestyle amenities to keep things interesting."
MoneyRates looked at several factors in determining the best states for young adults: youth unemployment, high proportion of young adults, college costs, rental availability, rental costs, high-speed Internet availability, nightlife and fitness facilities.
On Nebraska's best features: "Nebraska's youth unemployment rate is lower than any state's except North Dakota, and it also ranked in the top 10 for affordability of college and of residential rentals."
Here are the top 10.
1. North Dakota
2. South Dakota
And the worst state for a twentysomething to live in? Maine.
