Gen Z and the city – a love story?

Just as millennials, Gen Xers and baby boomers fled big cities during the pandemic in search of warmer weather and lower costs of living, the youngest adults (Ages 18-24) bucked the trend and moved in droves to some of the largest cities in the country. The “Gen Z” generation is obsessed with moving into bigger cities. Their generation enjoys fun things to do, food, nightlife, adventures, and affordability! They are always looking for something to do and where they may want to relocate to.

We all know that living in South Carolina is wonderful. The Palmetto State has something for everything and we often talk about how incredible the city of Charleston is. But that’s not all the state has to offer. Scholaroo created a detailed guide on the best US cities to live in. The report compared 150 cities across 47 metrics distributed in 9 key relevant categories: Crime & Safety, Affordability, Economy, Quality of life, Leisure and entertainment, Healthcare, Education, Employment, and Infrastructure. And in the best 150 cities to live there were four South Carolina cities.

Scout Motors Inc. (“Scout”) is establishing its first manufacturing plant in Blythewood, which is near Columbia, South Carolina. At the Richland County site, the company will build all-electric, next-generation trucks and rugged SUVs harkening back to the iconic Scout vehicles produced from 1960 to 1980. The company’s $2 billion investment has the potential to create 4,000 or more permanent jobs. At full capacity, more than 200,000 Scout vehicles may be produced annually at the facility.
