There's one in every city.

That neighborhood.

That trendy, unique square-mileage, housing frilly street signs, local bands, and hipsters. That place that
claims to have the best coffee in the world, organically roasted and served in mugs that actually make the drink taste better. 

If you're from the Pacific Northwest, think 23rd Street in Portland or Ballard in Seattle.
In Sydney, you'll find Surry Hills.

But let's be honest, these neighborhood are actually pretty cool. There's a reason why they've made a name for themselves and Surry Hills is no exception.

Its streets are lined with beautiful homes, hanging flower pots, and unique bars. The tiny, hole-in-the-wall cafes are literally packed to max capacity because their food and coffee drink are THAT GOOD.  And there is nothing like a fresh chocolate croissant to bring home the win.

What are the trendy neighborhoods in the city you live in?

Much love,

Ah, I totally get this! Our neighbourhood to die for is the collection of houses, lawns, and acreages that really screams family & settling down on the outskirts of town! Beautiful place. Happy Thursday!

I know exactly what you're saying! I live in Greater Los Angeles, so not much of this but my neighborhood is down the street from tons of wide open desert, breath-taking mountain views, and a great family block.

We have a few of these in Cincinnati. The other day my husband and I decided to work out in one of these areas just so we could look at all the cool houses there! :)

What a pretty neighborhood! There are a few of those types of super unique neighborhoods around Atlanta, and they always seem to have the best coffee like you said! Hipsters love them some good coffee. I can't blame 'em!
