Americans flocked to these 10 cities last year — and none are in New York or California

Houston, Las Vegas and Phoenix were among the top 10 moving destinations for Americans in 2021, according to truck rental company Penske's annual report.

So as Lake Meade runs dry, people move to Phoenix and Las Vegas.

Great to see Chicago on a list like this! Especially since some national media like to focus on how people are fleeing Chicago.

Imagine even thinking of Vegas or Phoenix right now with all the water uncertainty that's starting to crop up.

Barring a major reversal in the current state of things, those cities are going to be fucked in another 10-15 years

Only two of those cities are worth living in. The rest are parking lots or ecologically irresponsible to move to. Good for Chicago!

I dunno, if there’s a list with Orlando, I’m not sure I wanna be on it.

What I find most interesting about all this is the overall decline in people moving. It’s been a trend since the 80’s apparently. Fewer and fewer people making those long distance moves. I’m theorizing that Americans want to be near their families, which honestly makes perfect sense. It’s human nature.

Also nice to see Chicago on that list. Those two things kinda fly in the face of the Fox News/​Tribune/​Illinois Policy (ie Koch) narrative that there’s this giant exodus from the city and its surrounds.
