More and more millennials seem to be eschewing automobiles in favor of a more walkable lifestyle and environment, and likewise, walkability is hugely important for Boomers that are returning to urban areas. To be sure, not all Boomers are dead set on returning to the center of the city, but many still want to have a place that’s easily accessible. The ability to get somewhere easily is of the utmost importance to both generations.
Believe it or not, one of the biggest factors that’s driving Baby Boomers out of the suburbs and back to the cities is the same thing that’s currently attracting millennials, and the same thing that’s drawn people to cities for centuries: cities are cultural centers, tiny microcosms for the greater melting pot of the US. In a city, like Portland for example, you’re able to experience things you might miss in a suburb. Baby Boomers want to be close to the action. They want to be able to walk to a restaurant, see a show, check out a gallery, and stroll home, all in the same evening. With newer, more luxurious, urban apartment communities, this is becoming more and more possible.
