Here Are The 11 Smartest Cities In Minnesota To Live In

In 2015, Minnesota was named the 2nd smartest state in America by the Washington Post. The score was based on average IQ, SAT scores, ACT scores, and the percent of college graduates in the state. Of course, now that we know of our superior intelligence, we want to know which areas in the state had the largest role in helping us achieve that ranking… So we found them. Here are MN’s top 11 smartest places ranked with some help from Lumosity, NewGeography, and FindTheHome.
