What comes after you receive the diploma and toss the graduation cap?
To help the class of 2016 with that decision, real-estate marketplace Zumper analyzed and ranked the 260 largest metro regions in the US across six main factors: millennial population, young professional income, access to amenities and nightlife, employment rate, population of unmarried inhabitants, and rent prices.
Madison, Wisconsin — with its vibrant economy and moderate rent prices — topped Zumper's list of best US cities for recent grads.
Read on to see what other spots cracked the top 10. We also included the percentage of millennials in each metro area (from the US Census Bureau), the gross income of those between age 20 and 29 (from the US Census Bureau), and the median rent of a one-bedroom apartment (from Zumper).
