At these schools, the students have an affinity for hole-in-the-wall coffee shops, raggedy sweaters, ironic mustaches, and TOMS. That band you’ve never heard of?

Named the #2 Best City for Hipsters by Travel + Leisure, Portland is home to many American Apparel-clad people, specifically the students at Portland State University.

PSU students will never be without a non-fat soy latte in this area, because the Pearl District has the second most coffee shops per capita of the neighborhoods on Forbes’s hipster haven list.
