America's Snobbiest Cities

Which locals hold their noses highest in the air? Travel + Leisure readers crowned snobbiest cities in America—and, admittedly, they have good reason to be proud.

No. 15 Phoenix

15 of 21

This desert city and its luxury-shop-lined enclave Scottsdale (sometime called Snottsdale) likely made the top 20 thanks to its rep for tan denizens with confident golf swings. This year, however, the Arizona capital is boosting its crowd-pleasing potential by bringing the Super Bowl to town; the city also hosts the biggest PGA tourney of the year near the luxurious Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. The brick-oven pies at Pizzeria Bianco have also made Phoenix a destination for pizza snobs. Insiders know to go at lunch, when you get the same menu but much shorter waits.
