America’s Snobbiest Cities: Tampa

No. 6 Tampa

Tampa, a newcomer to the survey, made a dramatic entrance by ranking within the top 10 for its snob appeal. Every sophisticated city needs a SoHo, and in Tampa, it’s South of Howard. The upscale Southside delivers good people-watching and dolphin-watching along Bayshore Boulevard. It’s also where you’ll find the Epicurean Hotel, which has a wine shop and a cheeky dessert shop called Chocolate Pi, and faces local institution Bern’s Steak House. Readers also acknowledged Tampa for its cleanliness, giving locals another reason to feel superior.
