    Default 10 snobbiest cities in California

    a bit suprised by this list.

    These Are The 10 Snobbiest Cities In California - RoadSnacks

    1. Mill Valley

    That’s the Mill Valley City Hall, not someone’s house. Wikipedia.
    Population: 13.931
    Median household income: $116,983
    Median home price: $1,237,400
    There are snooty places, there are snobby places, and then there’s Mill Valley. Wait…where? Yeah, we had to look it up, too.
    Mill Valley is a smallish city tucked away into the rolling hillsides just past the Golden Gate Bridge, north of San Francisco. And boy are these people loaded. You can bet 100% that they look out over the bay area from atop their verandas and porches and think, “I’m better than they are.”
    They have the best, biggest most grandiose homes in the state and they know it. They have a golf course, water access and live among the redwoods. CNN and Forbes have called it both the ‘best’ place to live and the ‘most expensive’ place to live in America.
    Famous writers, actors and business people have made it home through the years. We could go on and on.
    Would you really want to live there and have these snobs as neighbors? Actually, yes, we’ll take it.
    We’ll just close the blinds, thank you very much.
    2. Palo Alto

    Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 64,514
    Median household income: $122,482
    Median home price: $2,028,300
    Poor Palo Alto. Only the second snobbiest city in the state. They’ll most likely turn their noses up at this ranking and insist that they are ‘better’ than the people in Mill Valley.
    And they’d have a point. This Bay Area city has it made. If you can afford it. There are all sorts of private schools, theaters and artsy events here all the time. The stuff snobville is made of. Oh yeah, and it’s home to Stanford, one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
    And don’t even try and get into a debate with someone from Palo Alto about anything. They’re the 3rd smartest city in the state.
    Does living in 2 million dollar homes make you a snob? Only if you brag about it.
    3. Malibu

    Malibu, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 12,743
    Median household income: $135,530
    Median home price: $2,331,100
    We’ll give you a hint as to why Malibu is snob central. It’s starts with M and ends in ONEY. Yes, the people in Malibu are loaded, they live in the biggest, most fantastic movie worthy homes, and they know they’re better than you.
    The people in Malibu’s car payments are about as much as your mortgage payment. And, they aren’t just money snobs, either. There’s some actual culture here. Plays, art galleries, you name it.
    if you’re from Malibu, you make sure everyone KNOWS you’re from Malibu. Plain and simple.
    4. Los Gatos

    Los Gatos High School. Wikipedia.
    Population: 29,522
    Median household income: $121,933
    Median home price: $1,444,900
    Back up the bay area we go. Los Gatos is a snooty place for sure, when you look at the sheer wealth in this place. Sure, homes are way overpriced here, but you have to be really successful in your career in order to live here.
    Does working among the elite in Silicon Valley make you a snob? Most likely. So does having a half dozen private schools, a museum, several art galleries and folks like John Steinbeck and Steve Wozniak as your neighbors.
    5. Beverly Hills

    Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 34,215
    Median household income: $85,918
    Median home price: $2,703,000
    Aw yes. Beverly Hills. The good ole’ 90210. Sure, we don’t even have to justify why this city is snobsville. But what’s interesting here is the income versus home price. A lot of the city lives normal lives like you and I.
    And about 10% of Beverly Hills lives like kings. Big giant, snooty kings in homes more splendid than, well, anywhere you’re ever gonna live.
    6. Lafayette

    Lafayette, CA. We Love Lafayette on Facebook
    Population: 24,073
    Median household income: $136,438
    Median home price: $1,224,700
    You can bet the people in Lafayette don’t use A-1 on their steaks and listen to Nickelback on the weekends. No siree, they are much too refined than that.
    Lafayette is plain loaded. Located in the central valley (Contra Costa County, near San Francisco), they’ve got 4 private schools and a handful of other snobberific amenities like art galleries and theaters to enjoy.
    Oh yeah, and Hall Of Fame quarterback Joe Montana used to live here. You know residents are quick to bring that up at every opportunity.
    7. San Carlos

    San Carlos, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 28,455
    Median household income: $120,112
    Median home price: $927,000
    Homes in San Carlos average ‘only’ $927,000, which means in the bay area, these folks have some work to do if they want to move on up the snob totem pole.
    They call their town, “The City of Good Living,” which means they sure aren’t hiding the fact that they think they’re on a different level than other cities. Barry Bonds, Dana Carvey and Rachelle Leah all make San Carlos home.
    What? You haven’t heard of Rachelle Leah? She will be SO offended.
    8. San Anselmo

    San Anselmo, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 12,363
    Median household income: $100,625
    Median home price: $816,900
    The Town of San Anselmo is another smallish, exclusive city in the Bay Area with needlessly large homes for the oversuccessfully rich. We’re not dogging them because of those facts. We’re kinda’ jealous, actually.
    Any town that has organized ‘baby and toddler storytimes’, coloring nights for adults (really?) and pancake breakfasts downtown has it all figured out. Sounds like they could throw themselves a parade and they wouldn’t even care if you and I came out and threw confetti at them.
    9. Newport Beach

    Newport Beach, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 85,323
    Median household income: $109,677
    Median home price: $1,347,000
    Of course, this list wouldn’t be complete without a couple of Orange County beach communities on it, right? Newport Beach is probably a lot more laid back than some of the other coastal towns in Southern California. But they’re for sure pretty snobby.
    Wouldn’t you be too? Thousands of people fight traffic and struggle to park just so they can lug their stuff and sit right outside your back door every day. They might invite you inside, but they’d probably worry that you’d track sand into their house.
    10. Laguna Beach

    Laguna Beach, CA. Wikipedia.
    Population: 22,873
    Median household income: $109,677
    Median home price: $1,347,000
    If you can afford a home in Laguna Beach, you are LOADED. This place is definitely snob central. Not only because there’s wealthy banker types and successful businessmen, but they’ve got a huge art scene here.
    Laguna Beach might have more art venues than anywhere else in the state. Wanna see some real snob-tastic stuff? Go to a Laguna Beach art gallery opening, get a free glass of wine and observe.
    Just don’t ask anyone if there’s any real estate for sale in the area. They’ll take one look at your shoes and know you’re a fake.
    Summing Up The Humble Pie

    Well there you have it, the places in California that needed a piece of humble pie, with Mill Valley in particular being called out as the snobbiest place in the state.
    So sure, we may call you guys a little ‘snobby’. But it’s only because we’re jealous.
    If you’re curious, here are the least snobby cities in California. Or the most down to earth, if you will:

    1. East La Mirada (Pop. 9,757)
    2. Mendota (Pop. 11,032)
    3. Arvin (Pop. 19,298)
    4. Farmersville (Pop. 10,547)
    5. Corcoran (Pop. 24,429)

    You could always be a snob yourself and visit some California Beach Resorts to experience the high life.

    All of God's children are not beautiful. Most of God's children are, in fact, barely presentable.

    I used to go to The Comedy Store on payday weekends with my friends. One night a comic onstage said he thought LaJolla was Spanish for "no black people". And I loved LaJolla and would drive up sometimes just to people watch and it never occurred to me that some people might resent my presence a matter of fact, I can't recall a negative incident in LaJolla...maybe they just decided to ignore me.
