What’s the Snobbiest City in America?


Pretentiousness is alive and well in the US of A.

Travel + Leisure magazine has created a list of America’s snobbiest cities.

The magazine came up with its list by looking at a slew of factors, including how people rate the attractiveness of people in town and the number of food trucks. Travel + Leisure also took into account cities that have “a reputation for aloof and smarty-pants residents, along with high-end shopping and highbrow cultural offerings like classical music and theater,” as well as tech-savviness, artisanal coffeehouses, and a conspicuous eco-consciousness.”

And what thriving metropolis took top honors? San Francisco, which won points for restaurants, ethnic food options and trendy shops.

Here’s a look at America’s 10 snobbiest cities:

1. San Francisco, California
2. New York, New York
3. Boston, Massachusetts
4. Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota
5. (tie) Santa Fe, New Mexico
(tie) Seattle, Washington
7. Chicago, Illinois
8. Providence, Rhode Island
9. Washington, DC
10. Charleston, South Carolina
