No. 11 Austin, TX

12 of 22

The Texas capital scored highly for wild weekends, but not dangerously so: it also ranked in the top 10 for feeling safe and for offering reliable wireless coverage. As proof of the city’s earthy vibe, Hops & Grain sells its beer in eco-conscious cans and recycles its spent grains to make dog biscuits. The community-owned Black Star Co-op, meanwhile, engages with its erudite drinking community by organizing the house brews into categories of Rational, Irrational, and Infinite.
