I've a kind of a fascination for the counterculture movement and hippie lifestyle that is identified with many college-towns around the country.
One that comes to my mind is Davis, CA and Austin, TX since I've lived in those 2 places for a short while. How does IC compare with these two?

Does downtown Iowa City resemble Austin's 6th Street?
I was reading online that U of Iowa's Music School is ranked among the top 5 in the nation and one of the best in the world. So I'm sure the music scene should be terrific.

How similar is the bike culture of Davis to that of Iowa City? (obviously not in the winter months). The ped mall seems interesting.

Also is the farmers market expensive? I used to love the farmers markets in CA and for CA prices some of them are cheap. I'm reading that the IC farmers market is now an year round event starting last year. That is real nice.
