One of the things that many of us in East Texas cannot stand is someone who looks down on us. They think they are better than everyone around them and will do everything they can to avoid acknowledging someone. Those people can be called snobs. Most people do associate being a snob with being rich or just those who live in the concrete jungle versus the ones who live in the sticks. An article came out that lists what could be the 10 snobbiest cities in all of Texas. Let's take a look at that list and how they came about it.

Different Types of Snobs

I moved from Lindale to Tyler in my early 20s and lived there for over 20 years. It can be easy to say that there are some snobs in Tyler. But for the most part, Tyler people are pretty cool. Snobs can come in all different "colors," too. For instance, you could be an iPhone snob, meaning you will only use an iPhone. You could also be a technology snob, meaning you love having the latest technology and make sure everyone around you knows it. There are many, many, many more different types of snobs. For this list by, they are not concentrating on those types of snobs.

The Numbers Used

They used a whole slew of numbers to come up with the Texas cities who are the snobbiest in the state:

  • Median home price
  • Median household income
  • Percentage with a college degree
  • Number of private schools
  • Performing arts and art shows or galleries
  • Lowest number of fast food restaurants

Once all of that was taken into consideration, they came up with the 10 snobbiest cities in Texas. These are in no particular order:

  1. Austin
  2. Plano
  3. Frisco
  4. Friendswood
  5. Richardson
  6. The Woodlands
  7. Coppell
  8. Mansfield
  9. Sugar Land
  10. Flower Mound

Closing Thoughts

Austin I completely understand being on this list. Plano, The Woodlands and Richardson also make sense. Frisco is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and is home to the Dallas Cowboys practice facility, I can see how it's becoming snobby. The rest I personally have never visited so I can't give an opinion on them.

No matter, you will need to thicken the skin a little bit when visiting these cities as there could be more noses turned up than normal.
