The snobbiest cities in America

by Otis Day

In the annual survey of America's Favorite Cities survey, people were asked to rank the snobby attitudes of various cities.

The ranking was based on reputation, high-end shopping and cultural offerings, as well as tech-savviness, trendy coffeehouses, and over-the-top eco-consciousness. 

The "winners" included cities with distinctive cultures, such as Seattle with its espresso-drinking software engineers, and Charleston, South Carolina where a quaint southern tradition blends with a modern foodie scene.


Here's the Top Ten Snobbiest Cities:

  1. San Francisco
  2. New York City
  3. Boston
  4. Minneapolis/St. Paul
  5. Santa Fe, New Mexico (tie)
  6. Seattle (tie)
  7. Chicago
