Madison ranked 9th snobbiest city in U.S.
Real estate blog Movoto looks at household income, number of fast food restaurants
MADISON, Wis. — A real estate blog has named Madison one of the country’s snobbiest cities.
According to the top 10 list released by Movoto, snobby cities are full of people who think they’re better than everyone else, and Madison ranks No. 9 on that list.
The No. 1 spot went to San Francisco, followed by Washington, D.C.; Seattle; Scottsdale, Arizona; Oakland, California; Portland, Oregon; Irvine, California, Honolulu, Hawaii; Madison; and Atlanta.
For the rankings Movoto compiled a list of the top 100 largest cities in the country and then looked at median home price, median household income, percent of population with a college degree, private schools per capita, performing arts per capita, art galleries per capita and fast food restaurants per capita.
According to the website, being one of the snobbiest cities isn’t a bad thing — it means the city has culture, money and nice houses.
At No. 9, Madison is made up of 53.51 percent college graduates with a median household income of $52,550. Madison was also ranked near the top of the list for number of theaters and art galleries per capita, and for its lack of fast food restaurants.
