Washington is the “most hipster” state overall, MoveHub adds, with three cities in the top 10: Vancouver, Tacoma and Spokane. No other state placed more than one city on the list.

Vital hipster services like what? Microbreweries, vegan restaurants, thrift stores and tattoo studios. Vancouver ranked second in the nation in microbreweries per capita (we have 8.6 per 100,000) and fifth in tattoo parlors (5.2 per 100,000).
