For the best coffee, shopping, and culture, follow the trail of the skinny-jeaned trendsetters. Travel + Leisure readers have ranked the best cities for hipsters.

No. 2 New Orleans

2 of 21

As the birthplace of jazz, the richly cultured Crescent City has had its own version of hipsters since back when fedoras were considered mainstream. Away from the tourist crowds, Nola’s cool cats lurk in the Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods, browsing the vintage vinyl at Euclid Records or mixing it up during the weekly spelling bee or TV nights at the Lost Love Lounge. Readers also gave the Who Dat community high marks for its sports bars and whoop-it-up weekends.
