The Northwest is indeed a hipster haven, according to a new survey conducted by MoveHub, an international relocation city. But globally, the top spot for hipsters goes to a city in the United Kingdom.
Portland ranked ranked as the second most hipster city in the world according to MoveHub's International Hipster Index, which combed through 446 cities across 20 countries.
