A new survey from “Travel and Leisure” magazine say that Boston Mass., and Providence, RI are among the most “snobbiest” places in the country.

The survey assessed factors including the areas “reputation for aloof and smarty-pants residents” and its access to high-end shopping and cultural sights.

The study also assessed the areas tech-savviness, coffeehouses, and eco-consciousness.

Providence came in at number eight on the list and Boston was near the top at number 3.

San Francisco came in at number one followed by New York City. Minneapolis, Santé Fe, Chicago, Washington D.C. and Charleston SC also placed in the top ten.
