What's the Best Hippy Town in the U.S.?
I was having this debate with a couple of friends, by "hippie town" we meant not only does it have to have hippies, but have a good number of health food stores, second hand or vintage clothing stores, outdoor stores, laid back attitude...

One friend was saying Boone, NC; another mentioned a couple of towns in Colorado.

So, what's YOUR favorite "hippy town"? I just may have to ride the motorcycle to the consensus winner.

2. I can ride there.
The Biltmore and Hippies don't seem to go together though.

5. Asheville has it all.
Hippies, rich ones from FL, a vibrant GLBT community, and we are surrounded by southern folks. And, some rednecks.

14. You've talked me into it then.
I can drop the wife off at Biltmore (she's always wanted to go), and I can enjoy the town. Nice riding up there too.

Organic markets AND southern food...nice setup.

130. Go to the Biltmore once
It's basically an overpriced museum with nice landscaping. A lovely memorial to an era Bush has been trying hard to recreate.

Once you've seen it, you don't need to go back. Talk about elitism! It seems to me that the place is a theme park for the wanna-be rich, who go as if the patina of all that money would somehow be transferred to them by osmosis.

But it is very nice, as is the whole area.

135. Great Vegetarian restaurant
in Asheville called "The Laughing Seed". There is a brew pub downstairs from it that serves Green Man Ale.

I love Asheville. A little liberal oasis in a sea of red.

We have a drum circle every friday night in the center of town, organic markets and 4 or 5 head shops.

the home of bluegrass music thanks to Bascom Lamar Lunsford who arranged the first festival there.

60. DVD of its history , which started 1928
is occasionally back in print. Looks to available right now if you're into that music as am I :
http://www.amazon.com/Bluegrass-Roots-Bascom-Lamar-Luns...

That DVD comes and goes. I think my copy was about twice that price a few years back but worth every cent. It's wonderful seeing cine film of the Appalachians all that time ago.

106. My father got Lunsford to begin recording the mountain music
My father was a young broadcast engineer in Asheville in the 1930s. He introduced Lunsford to the audio recording methods of the day ... wire recording and direct recording to discs. He traveled around the mountains with Lunsford and recorded for him for several years.

Lunsford is right up there with Lomax for the stuff he managed to find and preserve for future generations.

57. The problem with 'hip' anything

is that it sooner rather than later gets overrun with yuppies and posers. 'Success' is their downfall. That's whats happened to Asheville, NC, which is right up the road from me. The real scene gets overwhelmed by hustlers and people of my generation(boomers) looking to re-live their youth and with the bucks and time to indulge in such.

Same with bar districts, places like Fells Point in Baltimore or the waterfront in Savannah were a blast in the day, now they're sucko theme parks.

Duvall St was pretty white bread. However, if ya got off the main drag and hit the Green Parrot Saloon, a shrimper joint, you could get in all kinds of trouble.

104. I worked on a state research vessel based out of Key West in 1979
We'd regularly stagger back to our bunks in the bow around 4am, wake up after the ship had been out port for a couple hours already. Between the lack of sleep, nightlife, and two hours of bouncing, we'd have the worst hangovers imaginable.

I know what you mean about the shrimper joints, we got in ALL kinds of trouble.

67. Hells Bells!
That's my home town and I couldn't wait to leave back in the day. Now I live in a redneck town in N. Cal. A town where some people drive their Chevy or Ford trucks with a confederate flag flapping behind it. I never saw that in Brevard, but can recall that sign in Rosman about how the sun better not going down and a certain race of people being around.

8. Hippy means fatass
Edited on Wed Jul-02-08 06:56 AM by Warpy
so there are a lot of contenders, especially in the deep south.

However, if you were asking about HIPPIE towns, the main contender is Madrid, New Mexico, the land that time forgot.

I've been all over New England and the south, and nothing there compares.

Just don't expect it to be tidy. It's not.

41. You have a lot of company on that misspelling, a pet peeve of mine
Madrid is up in the mountains between Santa Fe and Albuquerque. I found it on my first trip out here when I decided to take the scenic route south. I've been back frequently when I need to remember who I used to be.

Madrid is an old mining town that was slowly bought up by freaks and artists starting in the late 60s. One of the businesses it sports is a real 1930s era soda fountain. There's no health food store, but it can be argued that most of the food in the area is health food since there are no fast food joints and no supermarket to be found.

The best salsa in a jar I've ever had was some stuff with a homemade label I bought off the back of a pickup truck in Madrid.

I second Madrid (MADrid), NM. Warm people, ease of atmosphere, a creative and enlightened, without pretension, collective consciousness. Though I might be considered a little pretentious for expressing that so blatantly, the people there are not judgmental.

29. The only downsides to Moab are:
the throngs of college a-holes who descend on the town each spring and summer to test their 4x4's on the slickrock (all but destroying any remaining cryptogamic soil) and the fact that the beer is capped at 3.2%ABV

it was also a time warp. I favor Woodstock over New Paltz because of the size. Woodstock is larger. If I have the money, in a couple of years, I'd move there in a heartbeat.

Or as the bumper stickers say, "The Peoples Republic of Rosendale". Mellow people, beautiful countryside, and not as commercialized as Woodstock or New Paltz.

19. Austin. I mean there is a yearly hippie pot party with thousands in a city park.
The story is that all the hippies were in the park getting high sometime 20 or 30 years ago. I'm unsure (I only went once, not a hippy) When a cop approached one guy the cop said "what are you kids doing here?!!" And one of the hippies said very convincingly. "Oh. Because it's Eeyore's Birthday." And the cops said. "Oh. Well. Okay." And now they have a big ol' damn hippy party in Pease Park every year called "Eeyore's Birthday" and a lot of folks are smoking pot.

Also there is a nudist state park that is officially called Hippie Hollow.

Another park has Frisbee Golf. (I mean come the fuck on)

Thrift shops. (And militant political thift stores too.)

Health food stores. Including a chain of Mexican owned Vegan Mexican Restaurants called Mr. Natural.

A food co-op market.

all of Maui is kind of becoming a victim of its own success, but the Upcountry area is still hanging on. Bonus: Makawao still has a hitching post right in the center of town. There are still actual paniolos (cowboys) up there, as well as on Big Island.

The thriving local music scene dried up though, replaced by hip hop DJ/jock bullshit/rave scene/, so violence and crime are much more frequent there now.

Brattleboro, Vermont..where there are outstanding warrants for the arrest of Bush and Cheney should they ever step foot in this town!
The downtown area is frequented by naked "tree huggers" strolling through the park and breathing in the smell of pot smoke in the air!

112. They're *still* there...
When I first came back to graduate school in 1979, I "discovered" the Beer Garden at 14th and Tennessee. When you stepped into that place, you went back in time 15 years! I don't think the "garden" is there anymore, but I'm sure the "regulars" are somewhere else in Lawrence.

Considering how small it is, it's one of the most hippie towns in Arkansas.

Eureka Springs is close, but it's larger and more tourist-y.

101. I was going to mention Eureka
the interesting thing about it is, tourists aside, it divides into two groups: hippies and jeezers. There is NO in between. In my day, the first thing that greeted you as you rounded the curve coming into town was a billboard reading "Get US out! Of the U.N.", brought to you by the Gerald L.K. Smith Foundation, the same people who built the "Christ of the Ozarks" statue (once described by a seven-year-old as "a milk carton with arms") and put on -- get this -- a Passion Play (no joos aloud :sarcasm: )

Meanwhile, the hippie contingent had its own private school, where it was my privilege to serve as guest math lecturer for a day. Topic: How to multiply really, really big numbers by 1 and come up with what you started with, or by 0 and come up with 0.

A college town that has more vegetarian restaurants than you can shake a stick at. Easier to find a tofu-burger than the real thing. And they've got a boardwalk complete with roller coaster! Not only that, but the UC Santa Cruz team mascot is the banana slug... voted in by the students years ago, the school admins tried to squash it (ugh, now that's an image I could do without :-) ) but the students prevailed.

70. Berea Kentucky is very artistic, and has a real out door community.
It also has one of the best small colleges in America. For every 77 males, there are 100 females. The population is young and artistic.

This is where you go if you want to learn traditional arts and crafts.




Their arts and craft fairs are known nationwide. The whole hippy movement was about getting back to basics.

was my favorite hippie town "back in the day," but it's almost too expensive for hippies to live there now. It's also too small to have all the stores you're talking about -- but as for "laid back," we were back there a couple of years ago, and it still has much the same feel as when I lived there in the very early '70s.

and read it cover to cover. My oldest daughter was born on the Bolinas mesa at home in the summer of 1972, attended by midwife Helen Swallow and 16 or 20 of my closest friends.

We sure did have some fun down there back in those days. Just sat around on the beach getting high and playing music all day long and into the night. :hippie:

138. I hope you enjoy this article.
I've been rereading it off & on today & sure have enjoyed it.

Hardly a day goes by that I don't remember those years.

I guess part of it was being young.

Every once & awhile my ol' lady & I (my apologies for using the jargon of the time) talk about what we thought the world would be like 40 or so years from then. It sure wasn't like this. It was nothing like this. It was going to be better.

Sometimes I'm sad. But I don't have very many regrets.

I think we surprised them. They didn't see it coming. But once they did they sure knew how to close the door.

I hope you're doing well & your family's good...all best LST.

and in some ways my life is almost like it was then, since I'm only working when I want to, and I live in Alaska where pot is legal. :smoke: The only thing different is that I'm doing photography now for fun instead of playing music. The years in between then and now weren't the best, but now I'm finally just kicking back, enjoying the fruits of my labors.

I don't know what to expect in the future, but if I made it this far through all the other adventures in my life, I guess I'll just keep on keepin' on. :)

119. Carrboro, NC--Right next to Chapel Hill.
Some people think of them as part of the same town, but they are two different towns. Carrboro
is smaller with a distinct town square area outside Weaver Street Market that serves as a real
gathering place.

One of the best venues for live music--Cat's Cradle--is there. Several excellent restaurants
as well as numerous laid back eateries.

One of two secondhand stores operated by the Chapel Hill/Carrboro City School Thrift shops is located
there. Excellent farmer's market.

Carrboro had a gay mayor for a number of years; he's now on the County Board of Supervisors. It's a very laid back town.

It definitely fit the bill in the 90's. I'm not so sure if it does now, the number of hippie outlets has contracted, though the attitude was still there last time I visited.

141. Yachats, Oregon?
Well, its not a big town like most mentioned already. And I really won't give too much away regarding what it has, being that its quite a gem that many people have not yet discovered. If you like the easy-going lifestyle and a community full of progressives, I think Yachats will fit the bill. Live music nightly, artsy atmosphere, beautiful environment...its an amazing place (far more hippy than any other place Ive been to in all of Oregon--Eugene/Ashland don't hold a candle).
