Hipsters, time to move

Posted By on Wed, Apr 18, 2012 at 11:28 AM

Yahoo Travel released its top 10 cities for hipsters today. Most are no-brainers (Seattle, Portland - both Portlands), and some exclusions made me really happy. Williamsburg is so 2002.

No. 8 totally caught me off guard. San Juan, anyone?

The balmy island city may not be the first to conjure images of skinny-jeaned hipsters, but it does have the hottest dining scene in the Caribbean, and its locals rank in the top 10 for being tech savvy. Perhaps ironically, the trendiest scene is found in Old Town (particularly in the area south of Calle Fortaleza, known as SoFo), where you can taste how the city ranked so well for ethnic cuisine, cafés, and street food. The city also scores highly for one key element of hip living: cool flea markets.

Take the money you have reserved in your budget for Moleskines and The National albums, and put it toward the $400 ticket it'll take to get from Charlotte to San Juan. Sounds like a good investment.
