10 trendiest, but still affordable, cities

From the article by Yuqing Pan on realtor.com:
Our data team mixed up a large batch of kale smoothies and set out to find the next hipster meccas sprouting up across the U.S. We took a deep dive into the 500 largest cities in the country in search of those that combine a fun, young, culture-rich urban experience with affordability for the long haul.
Criteria for the list included: Number of foodie hot spots, bike shops, yoga studios, cultural outlets, an increase in the population of 25- to 34-year-olds from 2013 to 2014, and an increase in the percentage of people shopping for a home on realtor.com.
After this, realtor.com ran the acceptable cities through an affordability check.  
This is what was left.
