Typically, they embrace thrift stores, being vegan, craft beer, among other things.
MoveHub ranked each city based on five categories including the following: number of microbreweries, vegan stores, thrift stores, tattoo parlors and rent demand. Knoxville received nods for its high number of local boutiques, a large number of microbreweries and wine bars.
