(USA TODAY by Kitty Yancey) - Here's yet another survey ranking cities and their residents on various attributes.

This one's from Travel + Leisure magazine readers, and it has some offbeat categories.

For instance: Top city for Intelligent People? Minneapolis/St. Paul, say readers. St. Paul sage Garrison Keillor of Prairie Home Companion fame must be applauding. And in his fictional Minnesota radio-show community of Lake Wobegon, the kids are above average, right? The Twin Cities also scored for home decor shops.

How about this one: Top City for People With a Charming Local Accent? If you're from Savannah, Ga., you win, darlin'. Savannah is the top city for ice cream as well. Who knew?
