SEATTLE — Seattle is ranked the #4 coolest city in America, according to a study released this week. Rival Portland is #1.

Comparing every North American city across a range of factors, including the number of record stores, microbreweries, tattoo studios, vegan restaurants, and thrift stores, online betting site Betway has analyzed the best locations to enjoy the hipster lifestyle.

Betway based the findings on a city’s art scene, nightlife, diversity, and commitment to sustainability.

Portland had an almost-perfect index score of 3.958 out of 5, home to a whopping 110 record stores and 188 microbreweries, 35% more than Seattle.
