Wilmington One of the Next “Hipster” Cities?

CultureMap Austin, a website that reports news and happenings around Austin, Texas, has predicted that Wilmington will be one of the nation’s next “hipster” cities. The recognition recognizes Wilmington’s up-and-coming status as a hip place to live, work and play…and points to things like the Cucalorus film festival and the company Freaker as reasons why.

“Wilmington is a sleepy, scenic, near-coastal city of 109,000 people, but scratch below the white picket surface and you’ll find a wonderfully weird creative community,” the article notes.

Other cities predicted to be “hipster” venues are Buffalo, New York and Birmingham, Alabama.
