Yup, that’s the take from Travel and Leisure magazine, whose readers named Boston the third-most snobbiest in the country. Pfft. Whatever.
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 like classical music and theater.
San Francisco and New York City finished ahead of Boston, which is just typical, right? Meanwhile, Providence came in at No. 8 and Portland, Maine 18, so at least we have company at the top of looking down.
