This Is The #1 Snobbiest Town In Illinois For 2023
Some towns in Illinois have a little more sass to them than others do.
Being nice in the Midwest is very much a thing. We're willing to help out our neighbors with a chore or anything they need done and we'll go out of our way to be compassionate and kind. But not every city in Illinois fits that bill.
Every state has at least one (often several) towns that just seem to think they're better than everyone else, for whatever reason. Maybe they're wealthier, they have better job opportunities, or more events and stuff going on.
The Snobbiest Town In Illinois
RoadSnacks did some number crunching and looked at what they labeled the "Snobbiest Places In Illinois". Specifically, they looked at:
- Percent of the population with higher education
- Median income
- Median home price
- Cost of living
Here are the top 3 snobbiest towns in Illinois. And (not surprisingly) I bet you can guess where a lot of them are.
Hinsdale, which is a Chicago suburb about 20 miles west of downtown, lands at #3 on the list with these stats:
- Population: 17,148
- % Highly Educated: 81.0%
- Median Income: $224,185
- Median Home Price: $880,100
About 40 minutes north of Chicago sits Glencoe. The village's median home price is huge. Glencoe is lakefront on Lake Michigan.
- Population: 8,824
- % Highly Educated: 86.0%
- Median Income: $212,132
- Median Home Price: $1,101,200
Just 16 miles north of downtown Chicago sits Winnetka, which ranks as the snobbiest city in Illinois. According to Wikipedia, it is one of the wealthiest places in America in terms of household income.
- Population: 12,658
- % Highly Educated: 91.0%
- Median Income: $250,001

And as far as the whole state goes, according to data from RoadSnacks, Illinois ranks as the 14th snobbiest state in America. Blame Chicagoland for that if you'd like.
