Seattle Ranked #1 “Hipster” City by Travel + Leisure

Merriam-Webster defines hipster as a person who is unusually aware of and interested in new and unconventional patterns (as in jazz or fashion). Travel + Leisure Magazine says they didn’t have to look too hard to figure out what makes Seattle the #1 hipster city in America. Here’s how Travel + Leisure came to their conclusion:

The magazine had their readers rank 35 metropolitan areas on culturally relevant features like live music, coffee bars, and independent boutiques. They also factored in microbrews, tech-savvy and offbeat residents. Numbers two and three are Portland, OR and San Francisco, respectively. Number four went to New Orleans and number five, Portland, Maine.
