MoveHub, an international relocation company, created an alternative Hipster Index to conduct a worldwide study. The motive? To determine the top hipster cities in the world.
The Hipster Index measures five components: the number of vegan restaurants, coffee shops, tattoo parlors, vintage boutiques, and record stores in each city per 100,000 residents. The results of these calculations produce a score with 1 being the least hipster and 10 being the most.
So what were the results for Miami? With a 6.83 Hipster Index score, The Magic City earned the title of 7th-most Hipster City in the world!
What does this mean? Miami has a lot of shopping. With a whopping 215 vintage stores, Miami contributed to the large Florida representation in the top ten hipster cities along with Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, and Tampa, which scored 11th.
