(CBS Seattle) – It’s not hard to understand why Seattle is ranked as one of the most exciting cities in the country; we’ve got tons of local breweries, a great restaurants and lots of opportunities to get outside.

Seattle’s cultural scene and diversity helped propel it into the top 5 in a new list compiled by Movoto bloggers. Seattle landed at No. 4 based on several factors including population age, and how many theaters, music venues and bars a city has per square mile.

So who beat us? Oakland took the top spot, followed by Boston and San Francisco. Portland made the list too, at No. 10.

Here’s one that may surprise you, New York city didn’t even make the top 5.
