Where in Orlando?

Other than the UCF area, I don't see where Orlando has a hipster movement.

The hipster population is probably about to explode. They just opened an Urban Outfitters in Midtown. It's very popular, even with people who weren't originally hipsters.

Just east of downtown there is a large hipster crowd, larger than what you see out by UCF. In the Lake Eola, Thornton Park, Colonial town areas, especially around mills.

You know your in a hipster neighborhood when you see this restaurant: http://dandelioncommunitea.com/

Austin's not really Southern. It's more of a Southwestern city. Athens, GA and Nashville are the first that come to mind.

Places like Miami, San Antonio, Dallas and Houston, have more of a different breed of cool, it's a mixture of urban chic sophisticated, with a strong latin international vibe rather than the quriky hodge-podge hipster scene, both cool, take your pick.

For San Antonio the neighborhoods of; Lavaca, Soflo, Blue Star and King William form the district of Southtown, and would best describe of what is Hipster in this city!
Southtown San Antonio
