America's Snobbiest Cities
No. 17 Houston
A combination of a rich arts tradition and luxury 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.
