Oregon Is The 2nd Most Popular State For People To Move To

United Van Lines

Oregon is the 2nd most popular place for people to move according to United Van Lines.

A national survey by the moving company found 65 percent of their customers packed up and moved to Oregon last year. Oregon was second only to Vermont for the state most people    migrated to in 2017.
Overall, Americans flocked to western states last year. Idaho came in 3rd in the survey, followed by Nevada, South Dakota and Washington. The top states people are moving away from include Illinois, New Jersey and New York.
