Name a place that you like that doesn't seem to have many hipsters. One place that I like here in the United States that does not seem to have many hipsters is Palm Desert, California. Palm Desert is located near Palm Springs and is just a couple hours east of Los Angeles. I love Palm Desert. It's a great place and is truly a hidden gem in this country. The only negative is that it sucks during the summer because of the heat. Other than the summer it's a great place to be.

Hmm I'm not too sure, but what about Miami or, in CA, Orange County/San Diego area?

Nice places with few hipsters? There honestly aren't any. Hipsters are drawn to nice places.

To avoid hipsters, you pretty much have to go to a retirement place or smaller community. Places like......

Palm Desert, California
Naples, Florida
Sarasota, Florida
Maui, Hawaii
Santa Fe, New Mexico
Madison, Georgia
Key West, Florida
Annapolis, Maryland
Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Exactly. Places with lots of old rich people. Especially places with lots of old rich white republicans.

Hipsters call big liberal cities their homes. They love urbanization, not suburbs, so you generally would want a red suburban city/town to dodge them. Phoenix, my hometown, has practically none of them. Some other cities that I would guess would fit would be Houston, Dallas, the entire South (except Austin), some of the non urban areas of the Midwest (so excluding Chicago and Minneapolis), and some of the smaller towns in the Northeast and the Rust Belt. Alaska and Hawaii too.

Practically any of the city favorites on C-D are hipster filled. These cities are: Seattle, San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Portland, Boulder, Chicago, Minneapolis, NYC, DC, Boston... that's all I can think of. Literally anywhere outside of these big cities and you should be fine.

The only big "trendy" city that I can think of that would possibly NOT attract hipsters would be Miami.

Nope. Inner-loop Houston and North Oak Cliff in Dallas are infested with neo-hipsters. The Washington corridor in Houston has been overtaken by these people. If you're talking about suburbs, then sure... but the same goes in suburban Austin, Portland, Seattle, SF, or any other notorious neo-hipster hot spot.

Don't know about Atlanta (since you mentioned "the entire South"), but from what I've heard it has it's share as well. I know Nashville is teeming with them, and I would imagine New Orleans has more than a few. And then there's Athens, GA, Chapel Hill, NC, maybe Knoxville, TN?

No, the South is not immune.
