Eugene, Ore. came in at number one. Perhaps it was because Ken Kesey was a native, or perhaps its because you can buy tie-dyed underwear from a number of stores. According to Estately, a local bicycle shop gives away free tofu every time the local Les Schwab gives away free beef.
Also on the list, Portland (#5), Ithaca, NY (#7), and Berkeley, Calif. (#8).
OK, Stoat. You got me!
Places to avoid..
You probably can smell them from miles away.
Wow. Dirty, smelly hippies who are ALSO smug.
I live here.(family reasons)
Correction: I reside here. Living and Olympia are mutually exclusive in my vernacular.
Whip the hippies’ eyes and make them cry!
A neighboring community to where I live was recently described in the local news rag as “the place where hipsters go to have kids”.
I’m sure the Chamber of Commerce there is just thrilled about THAT one!
Peace man...got any spare change?
A REAL hippie wouldn’t even know what “Facebook” is.
The “Evergreen State College”.
Rachel Corey’s alma mater.
A locus of drug culture. How charming.
Is ‘exist’, perhaps a more accurate term?
Freaky reference, maaaan.
Im sure being home to the Evergreen State College had nothing to do with this rating.
I was in Amherst,Massachusetts the other day,which is one of the filthiest,most Marxist towns in the nation.We saw a C5 from a nearby AF base flying overhead...pretty low...and I laughed and said to my sister "I'll bet the folks around here are thrilled to see *that*".I just wish he was flying a bit lower because those things are *loud*.
Berkeley = VERY rude people.
VERY much hostility.

Shout this from the rooftops!
Hand this article to every hippy you encounter!
Maybe they’ll all move out there and leave me alone.
I caught a bit of Savage last night, he was having fun with this.
