Survey: Orlando’s really smart – seriously!!!
Orlando was one of three Florida cities to make the Top 10 in a new “America’s Smartest Cities” ranking. Pittsburgh topped the list as the brainiest place in the nation, with Orlando placing second. Movoto, the real-estate blog, ranked Tampa sixth and Miami 10th.
The list, Movoto wrote, was based on universities and colleges per person; libraries per person; education level; media per person; museums per person; and public-school rank.
Orlando did particularly well in the college, public-school and media categories. Orlando’s overall ranking surprised the Movoto writers, who noted that neither Orlando nor Cincinnati (ranked ninth) had shown up often on their other “big-deal rankings.”
