Hippest Neighborhood

These are pictures from a subdivision near my own place. Pretty standard suburb, nicely landscaped entrance, cookie-cutter homes, streets name after pleasant plants. 

I love the advertising for it though:

Hip? If hip means exactly like every other subdivision found around Austin, then yes, this neighborhood is hip.  The fact they had to bring in Bobby Bones (a popular radio host) shows that they have had trouble selling this lifestyle. I've read that the suburbs are becoming less attractive to younger generations. Just yesterday, my best friend said she was afraid to buy a house and move out to the suburbs because she didn't want to become an old cat lady and never go out again. Her exact words.
