With “van life” now becoming one the fastest growing trends for millennials, how do you decide where to put down even the shortest of roots? has just ranked the top “van live” cities in America based on climate, camping choices, overnight parking spots, free internet availability (coffee shops and libraries), big gyms with cheap memberships for travelers, and more.

The Queen City came out on top, beating out Lake Havasu City, AZ (#2), Salinas, CA (#3), Jacksonville, FL (#4), and Greeley, CO (#5).
