Centers of hippy-dom

Where are the best places in the United States to go if you’re a hippy? Or want to live like one?

The Estately blog has the answer, and some of it is Northwest-centric.

Oregon made the list twice, with Eugene ranking at number 1 and Portland at number 5 – a pretty strong showing. (I’d have been inclined to reverse those numbers, though.)

And in Washington, Olympia – a good call – made number 2.

No place in Idaho was noted, but nearby northern California contributed four entries of the 17 – Arcata (though Mendocino might have been a better choice), San Francisco, Oakland and Berkley.
