Travel and Leisure put together a list of the Top 20 Snobbiest Cities. Looks like Houston and Austin made the cut. Ill take it.
A combination of a rich arts tradition andluxury shopping helped this oil town rub shoulders with the nation’s snobbiest. To shop like a socialite, check out Abejas, Dao Chloe Dao, or—for a little cowboy bling—Pinto Ranch. (You can also buy lots of designer look-alikes on Harwin Drive.) Some would say, however, that Houston is not so effete: the city ranked in the top 10 for its jumbo, unfussy burgers.
Rivals have long labeled the students at the University of Texas as “tea sippers,” and the whole city resonates with a brainy, offbeat vibe. While the hipsters hang out in East Austin, it’s hard to beat downtown’s Driskill Hotel, the former home of a cattle baron, for grande dame charm: it also offers easy access to Sixth Street’s music scene and overall wild side.
