From my experience in Arizona its 3 primary college towns draw in trendy and hip vibe.

Tucson - U of A, very eclectic and palpable hippy vibe. The city has a pretty cool ambiance about it
Tempe - ASU in a Abercrombie/Hollister sort of way.
Flagstaff - NAU in a mountain hippy/granola sort of way. It's Boulder lite.

yeah I hit on some stereotypes, oh well.

Talkeetna.

Little town with a spur road and railroad connection to Anchorage and Fairbanks, just south of Denali. It;s the "jumping off point" to Denali, and lots of climbers and aviators are located there. It's most likely the town that most closely resembles the mythical town of Cicily, of Northern Exposure fame.

Homer and Haines would be somewhere in the running too. Cool and hip probably aren't interpreted the same way here as they are in many more populated areas in the States.

Since I am from South Jersey I would have to say Atlantic City for year round and Wildwood for the summer!

Not my state, but close-by Kansas City: Rehabbed Crossroads District or Westport, both bustling with music shops, art galleries, and plenty of places to drink the city’s highly ranked microbrews.

For Iowa: Iowa City on a smaller scale.

In Ohio, it would probably be Yellow Springs and Athens. On the urban scale, probably Columbus.
