Most Popular Cities for a Hoverboard

Do you think your city is one of the best cities to ride a StreetSaw hoverboard in?

We did some research, and the answers to where hoverboards are most popular weren't what we expected.

Best Cities for a Hoverboard Are in, California?

We'll get to the full list of cities, but first, we want to let you know what we THOUGHT they would be before we set out with our real survey.

(If you're itching for the real results only, just scroll through this section)

Initially, we thought that the the majority of the people riding a hoverboarda would be in major cities on the West Coast like Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco or even the smaller beach cities like Manhattan Beach, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Hermosa Beach, Santa Monica, and Huntington Beach.


But, in our defense, wouldn't you think that these would be key locations for buying a hoverboard?

I mean, its direct by sea from China. A straight shot really.

And Californians, come on, we all know they're into gadgets (Silicon Valley) and have a higher average income than just about any other state in the USA, right?


Los Angeles and San Francisco were included, but they weren't the hottest spots in the country. In California, the hottest cities where people wanted to ride a hoverboard were:

  1. Los Angeles
  2. San Jose
  3. San Diego
  4. Manhattan Beach
  5. Sacramento
  6. La Mesa
  7. Laguna Beach
  8. Fullerton
  9. Santa Ana
  10. Walnut Creek
  11. Mountain View
  12. Palo Alto
  13. Citrus Heights

Most Popular Cities for a Hoverboard

Enough about California, lets talk about the BIGGEST cities in the United States, ranked by the popularity of the self balancing scooters and hoverboard in each city.

Now, lets rank the best cities to ride a hoverboard from most popular cities to least popular cities:

  1. New York, NY
  2. Washington DC
  3. Boston, MA
  4. Philadelphia, PA
  5. Chicago, IL
  6. Los Angeles, CA
  7. San Francisco, CA
  8. Baltimore, MA
  9. Atlanta, GA
  10. Detroit, MI
  11. Dallas, TX
  12. Seattle, WA
  13. Houston, TX
  14. Miami, FL
  15. Tampa Bay, FL
  16. Orlando, FL
  17. Cleveland, OH

It appears that the more crowded the population, the more popular owning a hoverboard is.

I was personally surprised that so many people want them in New York because my expectation was that it would be difficult to ride with so many people everywhere. Then, there's also the snow factor.

Being from Minnesota myself, I could really see how a owning a hoverboard would catch on. A lot of us own dogs, and owning a hoverboard would be a great way to tire them out on walks.
