A recent list compiled by the financial advice site Money Under 30 has named Salt Lake City as the second best city to live in for the young, broke and single.

The cities were each rated according to their cost of living, singles population and average commute time, among other things.

The cities of choice are spread all over the country, from the Pacific North West to the deep south. Most of which benefit greatly from colleges they house, and a reputation for their growing industries.

1 of 20. Minneapolis Minn./Bloomington, Wis.

Not only is Minneapolis America's fifth highest concentration of Fortune 500 companies, but it's also the third-largest theater market in the U.S.

Money Under 30 was particularly impressed by the city's relatively low unemployment rate of 5.5 percent.

2 of 20. Dallas, Texas

The ninth most populous city in the United States, Dallas is notable for its low cost of living in comparison to other major cities of its size.

3 of 20. Boston, Mass.

One of America's oldest cities, Boston is also one of the birthplaces of hardcore punk music.

4 of 20. Orlando, Fla.

Also known as "Hollywood East," Orlando is attractive to young poor singles because of its warm weather and proximity to Disney World.

5 of 20. San Diego, Calif.

Of the cities surveyed, San Diego has the second highest population of singles aged 18 to 44.

I'll grant you that Austin has alot of restaurants,bars, etc., in fact, when they get closed down because of money laundering and/or distribution points for the drug cartels, there is no short supply of somebody waiting in the wings to open up there again immediately. Plus now Formula 1 racing.
