Top 10 Cities for Recent College Graduates

Ready to enter the 'real world'? These cities have the most appeal

#6: Baltimore

We move just below the Mason-Dixon Line a bit for No. 6. Baltimore is a nice place for recent grads, providing a starting salary of $38,000 — $3,000 above average — coupled with a cost of living that is 10% below the national average. Not too shabby.

Unemployment at 6.8% isn’t terrible, while an above-average number of single folks will be around to mingle. As for the number of 20-to-24-year-olds … well, it’s pretty much average.

Like Chicago, you have a waterfront view (of the Inner Harbor), along with countless attractions, from music clubs to an aquarium to places to shop and snack. The sports scene is OK, too: The Ravens are a consistent success, and at least 2012 was kind to the Orioles (but even when they’re bad, Camden Yards is worth the trip).
