Hippies still live among us. Some have long hair and dress weird, but some have real jobs and make a comfortable living.

What are hippies? They evolved in the late 60's as a flower power counterculture that dressed unconventionally, and chose not to conform with typical social norms. Some will say that Deadheads are the only true hippies left, but I say you don't need to be a Deadhead to be a true hippie.

Thrillist.com, the online lifestyle site, has figured out that each state has a notorious hippy town. Here's a list of New England's hippiest towns:
