Ranking We’d Like to Give Back (Editors' Pick)

Second Snobbiest Small City in America

Bethesda gets its fair share of “best” rankings—in 2014, Money Magazine ranked Bethesda the “top earning town” in the country, and NerdWallet.com named it the most educated. But one recent shout-out rubbed us the wrong way. In July 2014, the real estate blog Movoto named Bethesda the second snobbiest small city in America based on its home prices, median household income, number of private schools, number of performing arts venues and lack of fast food restaurants. At least we have some company on this one—Rockville tied for eighth on the list.
