The team at RoadSnacks.com has crunched the numbers, and come up with the list of the ten snobbiest cities in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. They start by saying that Minnesota is less snobby than most of the country with our midwestern hospitality and attitude -- but somebody's got to be in the top-10, so here we go:

  1. Lake Elmo
  2. Excelsior
  3. Stillwater
  4. Chanhassen
  5. Albertville
  6. Orono
  7. Eden Prairie
  8. Rogers
  9. Minneapolis
  10. Mendota Heights

 

They looked at Minnesota cities with a population of 5000 of more, and then looked at the following snob-tastic criteria for each location:

  • Median home price (Higher is snobbier)
  • Median household income (Higher is snobbier)
  • Percent of population with a college degree (Higher is snobbier)
  • Private schools per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Theaters per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Art galleries per capita (Higher is snobbier)

There you have it. Feel free to share this list with you friends and family who live in these places to poke a little Minnesota fun.
