America’s Snobbiest Cities
Are you a snob? If so, Travel + Leisure magazine has a story for you. They’ve combed the country looking for “America’s snobbiest cities.” What constitutes a city being snobby, you ask?
According to T+L:
To determine which city has the biggest nose in the air, we factored in some traditional staples of snobbery: a reputation for aloof and smarty-pants residents, along with high-end shopping and highbrow cultural offerings likeclassical music and theater.
But we also considered 21st-century definitions of elitism: tech-savviness, artisanal coffeehouses, and a conspicuous eco-consciousness (say, the kind of city where you get a dirty look for throwing your coffee cup in the wrong bin).
I’m not sure if it’s a good thing or bad thing that I’ve been to seven of these cities. How snobby are you?
