Richmond, VA is a nice big city with so much to do, full of art and culture, but still with a nice southern feel. If you live in an apartment in Glen Allen, Richmond, or any other neighborhood of Richmond, you already know what a great city this is. But did you know that other know too?
A hypothesizing of what the next hipster cities of America will be turned into a big, “national” debate last week.
Hipsters from Chattanooga, Asheville, Burlington, Detroit, Richmond, Pittsburgh and Baltimore voiced their opinions on what is to be the next hipster city. Non-hipsters from those cities also chimed in. Whether you like young, creative urbanites or not, the subject matter seems to be a passionate one.
So what were your thoughts on America's next hipster cities? The Gardens at Twin Hickory, an apartment home community in Glen Allen, VA wants to know! With music festivals, cool restaurants, and a great downtown, Richmond surely qualifies.
In order to crown the next emerging hip city, CultureMap ran a poll asking what readers think the next hipster city of America is. The consensus? Richmond, Virginia by a landslide (72% of votes). The other contenders were shoved aside by Richmond's city-wide push for the title. Congratulations, Richmond, you're the next hipster city of America!
