I've got some sad news, Washingtonians. Movoto Blog, a real estate blog, has compiled a list of the country's preppiest cities. The results may surprise you!
Only one of the top ten cities is in New England but DC just barely cracked the top 10! What a tragedy! Instead of crowning DC as prep supreme, San Francisco took home the honor. Really?! The land of start-ups and hippies?! Really...
The blog cites the following as their criteria:
Number of preppy clothing retailers per capita
Country clubs per capita
Equestrian centers per capita
Private schools per capita
Presence of boarding/preparatory schools
Percentage of college graduates with a bachelor’s degree or higher
Median household income
How could DC not top the list!!! We've compiled some additional reasons that make DC the ultimate preppy city in the country!
