When it comes to being a snob, you’ve got all types. You’ve got your wine snobs, beer snobs, and food snobs. There are book snobs, movie snobs, and theatre (yes, with an re) snobs. These days, you’ve probably even got snob snobs—people who think their type of snob is better than yours.

Over in Nebraska, you might not think of folks as ‘snobby’ as the others in the northeast. But, they’re out there, for sure. Especially in certain areas of Nebraska, where you can call these true midwesterners snooty or even just plain loaded if you will.

In fact, in these 10 places, it’s downright snobby:

  2. Gretna (Photos)
  3. Bennington
  4. Chalco
  5. Bellevue (Photos)
  6. Waverly (Photos)
  7. Lincoln (Photos)
  8. Blair (Photos)
  9. La Vista (Photos)
  10. Seward (Photos)

Now we’re not so full of ourselves as to just come up with this list from nowhere. We actually analyzed 83 places in the state. And we’re not saying there’s anything wrong with these cities.

Actually, if we had their wealth and lifestyle, we’d probably be a little snobby, too.

How we determined the snobbiest places in Nebraska

You think we’d just come up with this list willy nilly? Not a chance.

What we did is, we gathered up all of the places in Nebraska with populations of 1,500 people or more. This left us with a total of 83 places. Then, we looked at each place in terms of these snoot-er-iffic criteria: (And no, it’s not a word. English snob.)

  • Median home price (Higher is snobbier)
  • Median household income (Higher is snobbier)
  • Percent of population with a college degree (Higher is snobbier)
  • Private schools per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Theaters per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Art galleries per capita (Higher is snobbier)

From there, we ranked each of our 83 places in each category with scores from one to 83. We then averaged each place’s ranking into one overall score, where the lowest score went to the snobbiest place in Nebraska. So let’s all flip a table in honor of Papillion (with our pinkies up, of course.)

Now before you get upset and ruin your blowout or something drastic here, let’s remember that this is all in good fun. Would we live in one of these 10 places if we had the chance? Of course we would!

Now, let’s put on your monocle and take a look at what make these places so snobby; for a more complete list, just hop down to the end of the post.
