POR Mornings

Portland is one of America’s SNOBBIEST cities!
Portland is one of America’s SNOBBIEST cities!

“Travel and Leisure” recently assessed America’s snobbiest cities, using a variety of factors, such as “reputation for aloof and smarty-pants residents, along with high-end shopping and highbrow cultural offerings like classical music and theater.”

Also, “tech-savviness, artisanal coffeehouses, and a conspicuous eco-consciousness,” whatever THAT means.

The Top 10 is listed below, but guess who’s in the Top 20?

No. 18 Portland, ME
The Old Port is a great place to be a beer snob: check out Novare Res Bier Café, which boasts 500 different kinds of bottles and 25 taps. Readers may have found the quaint Maine city a tad exclusive—it ranked poorly for varied hotel options—yet they did deem Portland very welcoming in one way: it won the survey for feeling safe.

1. San Francisco, CA
2. New York, New York
3. Boston, MA
4. Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
5. Santa Fe, NM/Seattle, WA (tie)
7. Chicago, IL
8. Providence, RI
9. Washington, D.C.
10. Charleston, SC
