Boise Ranks Higher on the ‘U.S. Hipster Index’ Than You Think
Oh hey look, Boise on another top 10 list. But is it a good thing this time?
Movehub.com has compiled what they say is the official index of where to find the most hipsters in America. How do they define a hipster? By looking at what cities contain the most of the following:
- Vegan stores
- Thrift shops
- Annual rent demand increase
- Tattoo shops
Our neighbors in Salt Lake City nearly topped the list, bested only by Vancouver, Washington. The surprising thing is where they ranked Boise.
We were 4th, with a "U.S. Hipster Index Score" of 7.043.
How Portland came in 12th on this list is beyond me. You literally cannot walk a single block without someone asking you to check out their band, or worse, share some kombucha tea with you. You wouldn't get it.
Also, the book was better.
