Arlington has come in #7 among the “Most Hipster Cities” (we know, it’s a county) in the nation, according to findthehome.com. What constitutes a hip city? Findthehome.com says it has to do with four things: age, education, yoga studios and cafes.

“We first decided to only look at cities with over 50,000 people that also had a high population of people between the ages of 20 and 34. Then we looked at the cities with a fairly educated population (a high percentage of residents with at least a Bachelor’s Degree), many cafes and yoga studios. We calculated a composite score for each city by multiplying the number of yoga studios per 10K people with cafes per 10K people, and used this final number to rank the cities.”
