MINNEAPOLIS - Humorist Garrison Keillor has long bragged about his fictional hometown that "All the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average."
It's no wonder people think we Minnesotans are a bit full of ourselves.
Travel and Leisure Magazine apparently thinks so, naming Minneapolis/St. Paulnumber four on its list of snobbiest American Cities. Editors write;
"Perhaps readers felt intimidated by these bookish, indie-music-loving, craft-beer-drinking hipsters, who also ranked highly for being exceptionally tidy. If these Minnesotans feel self-satisfied, is it any wonder? They also scored well for being fit and outdoorsy; you can join them at the Chain of Lakes, where, depending on the season, folks are hiking, paddling, or even ice-surfing."
Toppingthe TwinCities on the list of snobbiest cities are San Francisco, New York, and Boston.
