After just being dubbed last week as the "Happiest City in California," Mountain View ranks again!

This time it is Livability's listings of the "Top 10 Best Cities for New College Grads 2014," where Mountain View came in at No. 10.

"Our list of the Top 10 Best Cities for New College Grads ranks cities where jobs are available and where you'd want to live during all those non-working hours," Livability said.

Mountain View is described as "a techie's dream town, even to those who don't land a coveted job at Google's corporate headquarters." 

Factors included the number of 25- to 34-year-olds living in each city, the availability of rental properties, unemployment rates, educational attainment levels, use of public transportation and the types of jobs these places offer. We also sought out cities that cater to a younger demographic by offering lots of recreational activities, hot nightlife and a hip vibe.
