Ann Arbor beats Cambridge and Berkeley for smartest city in the U.S.
Ann Arbor residents have one more thing about which to feel smug. Our fair city, which perennially ranks on lists ranging from best place to live to most walkable, now also ranks No. 1 in brainpower, at least when it’s measured by educational attainment.
Cambridge, home to Harvard University, came in second, while Berkeley where the University of California is located, was third.
The analysis ranked cities with more than 100,000 residents.
