Which are the cities/surrounding areas that you've found the people generally have a humble attitude, and aren't largely conceited/arrogant/condescending/snobby?

When I've gone back to Washington DC recently, the general attitude of the city makes it hard for me to believe I grew up there.

If you follow the NFL, any city that's part of the AFC North fits this description. Among extra-large cities, Chicago and Philadelphia are co-champions.

New Orleans is fun, and while there's plenty of eccentricity, it feels more authentic than the "eccentricity" of places like Austin or Portland.

To me, the most authentic city in Texas is San Antonio.

I would think blue-collar cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Cleveland, etc would be pretty humble and not too snobby or condescending. I think New York City, Boston, San Francisco and Washington DC are very down to earth too. Right? ..
