How did Austin and Seattle get higher votes than Chicago and LA? Seattle and Austin is great and all, but I wouldn't expect Seattle and Austin to be more hip than Chicago and LA.

there is nothing hip or cool about seattle, san francisco, portland or any other cities like them. sorry

When I think of Chicago, I don't necessarily think hip. I think of a more business oriented place. Granted, NYC is even more of a business center, but they set the standard for what's chic and what is cool. In terms of hipness, IMO LA would probably go before Chicago. Chicago has set lots of trends in the past and even does a little now, but it's the cities that continue to do so that are the hippest.

I'm surprised so many people voted for Las Vegas. If Las Vegas were a person, he'd be a late-fortyish, leisure-suit wearing guy with a gold coke spoon dangling in his chest hairs. Nothing hip about that place at all. It's just the White Trash Capital of the World.

A hip city is indellibly characterized by a vibrant urban core/dowtown, a major arts and culture scene, a great restaurant/culinary scene, an artsy, young population, diversity of residents, etc. In other words--HIP, COOL, SOPHISTICATED, etc.
...and full of people who pat themselves on the back for it.
