You can be in the "coolest" place in the world and if you're not it doesn't matter!

I know where you're going with this, and I'm pretty much known for coming down on cities like Charlotte and Dallas when it comes to that; but when it comes to Millenials and what we find "cool" I don't that should be taken highly over anything else.

I just don't see how Pittsburgh is "cool," personally speaking.



Take out Memphis, Birmingham, Detroit, and Cleveland and there you go.
So you consider Cleveland and Detroit "cool" but not Pittsburgh or Minneapolis?

Delusions, millennials are flocking to Detroit.

Another nonsense city-data thread with people commenting on things they don't know about, as usual.

Louisville isn't "uncool" by any means. There is a ton to do, and it has a great nightlife/bar scene as well. "The Highlands" is a major "urban" destination within the city, people flock to it. Tons of great music festivals & venues as well.

That being said, I'm HAPPY some people see it as "uncool", keep the idiot hipsters away

I would say Louisville is kind of middle ground. It's not Austin or Portland but its not OKC or Wichita either. It's not a place a lot of young people would seek out but I also cannot see people objecting to it just because its Louisville unless they wouldn't live in any city that size. The city punches above its weight in my opinion.

I scoff at any notion that Detroit is uncool. Thats one cool town.

I think a big negative about Louisville, is the simple fact that it's landlocked, and also in Kentucky. I've noticed a lot of people tend to think Louisville is just like the rest of Kentucky, redneck, poor, etc... When in reality, Louisville is nothing like the rest of the state.

The landlocked thing I totally understand, 9-10 hours to the ocean, and a couple hours from the mountains

Good list! Though for some reason I think that Detroit and Birmingham will be a draw in the near future.

I'm a very open-minded person, but I also like variety. Pittsburgh and Minneapolis both don't seem open to drawing in multiple demographics. It might be cool to a distinct group of people, but doesn't looks like other groups are included.

See post above.

Also I don't really care for Urbanity when it comes to things like this, as long as there's walkable areas.
