America's Best Cities for Hipsters

America's Best Cities for Hipsters: Charleston

Steve Murray / Alamy

No. 7 Charleston, SC

This genteel city sashayed into the hipster top 10 for walking the line between old-fashioned and old-school. King Street is a reliable hotbed for antiques and design shopping, and in the area around Upper High King, you can kick back at High Wire Distilling (which makes small-batch rums, gins, and whiskeys) or Bay Street Biergarten, which offers craft beers and a Bavarian menu inside a rehabbed train depot. Don’t let their polite agreeability fool you, however: these South Carolina locals also scored well for being plenty smart.
