Look out, California, there's a new West Coast hot spot on the map.
According CNNMoney, which just released United Van Lines' annual migration study, Oregon was the destination among people who moved from one state to another last year. The yearly review took into account 129,000 moves in the United States in 2013 and found more than 61 percent of all interstate relocations made in Oregon were for people coming to live in the state. So what's the draw? Housing costs? Business incentives? Or maybe just some room to breathe? Well, it's looking like all of the above.
"We're seeing continued migration to the Pacific Northwest as young professionals and retirees are drawn to amenities, including public transit, green space and the local arts and entertainment scene," said UCLA economist Michael Stoll.
Whatever the reason, Oregon managed to dethrone Washington, DC, which held the top spot for the previous five years.
