Snobbiest Cities

Don't let those whimsical cable cars and rainbow colored Victorian homes fool you -- San Francisco thinks it's better than you. At least, that's the consensus of Travel and Leisure Magazine's readers.

In a new poll, the magazine asked readers to rank 30 major U.S. metropolitan areas on their overall snobbishness. San Francisco was the runaway winner, easily outdistancing its nearest competitors.

Still snobby, but at least better than San Francisco, were New York City, Boston and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Santa Fe and Seattle tied for fifth. Closer to home, Nashville came in at number 13 and Kansas City, Mo., tied for number 14.

So why did San Francisco come in first? Readers cited the city's reputation for being a serious "food snob" city.
