Drum roll, please. Atlanta was just named the nerdiest city in America. (Phew, we were getting a little worried for a minute.)

So how exactly does a city become nerdy? Well, according to the real estate blog that put out the list, a few factors play into who makes the cut. Here are just a few:

  • People per comic book store, per science museum, video game store and a few others.
  • The distance to the nearest Renaissance fair.
  • The number of annual comic book, video game, anime, and sci-fi conventions.

Add up all of these factors and you have Atlanta as the nerdiest city in America. Who else was among the Big Peach on the list?

Portland came in second followed by Seattle and Sacramento. Minneapolis rounded out the top 5.

Finishing the second half of the list was Boston, Las Vegas, Miami and San Jose.

Last but least, finishing the list was none other than Denver, Colorado.

I’m not going to lie, I’m kind of sad Phoenix didn’t make the cut. Better luck to us next year!
