Phoenix Named One of the Top Cities for People Under 35

Other highly scientific measures include the number of cheap takeout restaurants per 100,000 people, the number of vintage clothing stores per 100,000 people, the percentage of the population that's young and single, and more.

Phoenix cracked the top 10 for median age (eighth), cost of Internet (eighth), cost of groceries (first), number of vintage clothing stores (ninth), and the cost of that pint of Guinness (sixth), which was found by calling a random Irish pub in the city (5 bucks, by the way).

The city didn't do so well on public transportation ridership, the cost of cigarettes, or average salary.
