It's great to be recognized, but maybe not this time. The City of Pasadena was recently ranked at the top of Movoto Real Estate blog's Top 10 Snobbiest Mid-Sized Cities in America list.
Movoto used criteria including media home price, income, private schools per capita and art galleries per capita as rank cities.
Movoto provided this insight about Pasadena:
By a landslide, Pasadena was our snobbiest place to call home. This city had a ton of performing arts venues, art galleries, nearby country clubs, and private schools for the more selective sort to choose from. It also had the fifth highest median home price, so you bet your next château will have the garden tub and breakfast nook you always dreamed of.
We should also mention that this rosy little town is home of the Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl, where only the best teams and best floats get to strut their stuff. However, snobs in search of something more cultural and less touristy might rather take in a show from the Pasadena Symphony Orchestra at the Ambassador Auditorium.
