Outside of the big cities, which state or city has a surprisingly thriving Asian community?

Basically outside Chicago, SoCal, Northeast Corridor, which state or city has a surprisingly thriving asian community?

When I visited Austin, they have nice little chinese shopping center, and a korean one in another corner. Seattle has a small and quaint Chinatown. I hear ATL has a pretty big asian community. And also hear Columbus Ohio has a decent size japanese community.

Are there any others? Does Louisiana have a large south asian community seeing as their guvnor is Bobby Jindal.

The Twin Cities have a sizeable Asian population and the largest Hmong community in the United States.

Pennsylvania has the seventh-largest Vietnamese population in the United States, per 2013 U.S. Census Bureau estimates, which gives it the largest Vietnamese population outside the Southern and Western states (it's passed Massachusetts since 2010). Here's a list of all counties in Pennsylvania with at least 1,000 Vietnamese:


19,239 - Philadelphia County
3,717 - Montgomery County
2,670 - Delaware County
2,045 - Lancaster County
1,721 - Lehigh County
1,523 - Cumberland County
1,424 - Allegheny County
1,411 - York County
1,273 - Berks County
1,178 - Chester County
1,169 - Dauphin County
1,008 - Bucks County


In Georgia, Gwinnett County is the most Asian County (11.0%), and has a Korean population of 22,731.

Ithaca NY, Brighton in the Rochester area, the Twin Cities, parts of SW Oakland County MI and New Orleans, among others.

Just about every Upstate NY metro will have an area and/or neighborhood with at least a notable concentration. For instance, in the Binghamton area, Vestal and to a lesser degree, Johnson City come to mind. In the Utica area, New Hartford and parts of Utica come to mind. Gang Mills outside of Corning is another community. So, you may find a community/concentration that fits the criteria.

Wow, THAT's a good example! I was going to mention smaller towns in Wisconsin, like Sheboygan, where I wasn't expecting to see a moderate Hmong population, at 9% of the city population.

Another Midwestern city with a large Asian population include the Twin Cities (~250,000 Asians). This dot map shows that population pretty clearly:

Not really. At least not enough to elect Jindal. His ethnicity had little to do with his political success in LA.

There are other larger Asian populations in Louisiana. Filipinos have lived in NOLA since its earliest days (port city and all), and the Chinese population swelled in the 20th century. The group that most readily comes to mind, though, are the Vietnamese, who are all over the shrimping industry there. (Or at least they were. Shrimping in the Gulf has seen better days.)

Most of your largest concentrations of Asians, even in small cities, is in Hawaii and California. Palisades Park, NJ and Seattle's Beacon Hill area also have high concentrations, though those are really parts of larger cities/metros.

One surprising city with a large Asian population? Plano, TX. It's a suburb of Dallas, so it's not exactly a smaller town, but it's something like 17% Asian.

Are these mostly college towns?
