Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Countless trend stories have been written about young, ambitious people flocking to Detroit because it’s cheaper and in need of fresh ideas.

Or they’ve returned after college or a disappointing stint in a major metropolis, realizing that they need their hometown just as much as their hometown needs them. Albuquerque has been retaining some of its natives, too, especially those who initially flocked to super-pricey California and realized that their quieter, cheaper hometown was the ideal place to ride out the recession.
