America's Snobbiest Cities

America’s Snobbiest Cities: San Diego

No. 16 San Diego

Flip-flops and board shorts are acceptable attire in most parts of this SoCal city. But one exception to the casual rule is the Old Hollywood–loving, jacket-required Turf Club at the Del Mar racetrack. In fall 2014, the horse-racing track holds a retro Bing Crosby Season, complete with vintage-fashion contests. You might also experience some ’tude as part of the serious craft beer scene: local beer nerds can be found ruminating about the notes in their IPA at Stone Brewing’s World Bistro and Gardens or at microbrewer Alpine Beer Co.
