Many US cities stand out as being famous for, or being known for, a specific something(s). Whether that "something" is for tourism, or a historical occurrence, or something that's famously made there, these cities stand out from their peers.

Which city will emerge in the next 10 years as a leader for what is happening or what they are currently going to be known for? For example, like Seattle is known for Starbucks and Microsoft, while Portland is known as the hipster city. What "branding" will some cities take on, 10 years down the road?

Some opinions and fun predictions--
I say Atlanta will continue to be known for capital of film and television production, and it will keep booming there--taking some of the pieces of the action from LA and NYC.

Also, I think Detroit will become known as the hipster city. Nashville will continue to become a music city, for most all varieties of music.

Newer city branding will be Charlotte for finance, San Francisco fading and overpriced, Miami will become a hotspot digital/tech hub and Boston will be the new silicon valley of the east. Asheville, NC continues to become known as a brewery capital.

Pittsburgh is known for steel, but that's ironic now since there no longer are any steel mills within the city limits. (and actually not that many in the metro area)

While many tv/movies may be produced there, I don't know anyone who would suggest it's the capital of film. Well, maybe the Atlanta hopefuls. That may change in the future but the fact of the matter is that even though films may be produced there, celebrities are still living in L.A. or NYC. That should tell you something right there. But hey, you have Beiber!

After L.A. and NYC I would think of Toronto and Vancouver next.

Milwaukee is known for beer. We have lots of it.

Duluth, MN is known for shipping iron from the Iron Range and other commodities across Lake Superior and the other great lakes. It is most famous for the iconic lift bridge and being the largest US city abutting Lake Superior. I am predicting that the city will continue to become more crunchy as people discover how much access to the outdoors it has.

I don't think Denver shows up on the national radar that much in terms of snow, especially compared to say... Buffalo. I'd say Denver is known for its mile high elevation, gateway to the Rockies, sports, beer, and weed.

Buffalo is not much on the radar here. Most Coloradans are sick of the weed stuff.
