Is the Bay Area really home to some of the snobbiest cities in the nation?

According to Movoto Blog, a site that covers real estate “for those who like to have fun,” the Bay Area is not only home to the U.S.’s snobbiest city (Palo Alto, apparently), but it also has a reoccurring presence on the site’s list of 50.

Frankly, some of these rankings left us a little perplexed. For example, it’s hard to see a list that includes San Rafael and Novato without mentioning Marin County’s significantly more affluent – and therefore probably snootier – communities. (We’re looking at you, Mill Valley.)

But the ranking was focused on a specific city size; Movato only considered “small cities” with a population between 45,000 and 65,000.

To create the list, Movoto looked at median home price, household income, performing arts, education, number of art galleries and the number of fast food restaurants.

See the top 10 snooty cities and other California municipalities featured in the top 50 in the above slideshow. As the Movato writers put it, “California reigns supreme in the elitism department, but that’s hardly surprising.”

Ouch.
