What makes a city cool?

Is it the food?  The people? The amount of arts or recreation available in the area?

Maybe it’s the average age of the overall population.Whatever it is, there’s something inherently “cool” about some cities versus others.

Some cities will never lose their cool factor.  Others have to earn it all over again year after year.  Then there are the surprises that you find somewhere along the way that make you say, “Hey, I never thought that place was cool – but now it is.”, kinda like what happens in the last 10 minutes of a teenage romantic comedy from the 1980’s.
