Atlanta among geekiest cities in the nation

by Emily Mack

Some people dream of a house with a yard and a white picket fence … But others just want easy access to a comic book store. Some people are geeks. And in honor of Embrace Your Geekness Day — July 13, apparently — Lawn Love has compiled a list of the geekiest cities in the U.S. Atlanta ranks at No. 4.

Metrics for the Lawn Love study include nerdy local events, like comic-cons and Renaissance fairs, as well as access to collectable shops, cosplay materials and official meetup groups. As it turns out, Atlanta is the No. 1 place in the country for comic-cons. The area hosts more than any other city in country, followed by a four-way tie between Denver, New York City, Orlando and Las Vegas.

The rest of the top geekiest cities in the U.S. are:

1. New York City, N.Y.
2. Los Angeles, Calif.
3. Las Vegas, Nev.
4. Atlanta, Ga.
5. San Antonio, Texas
6. Houston, Texas
7. Chicago, Ill.
8. Orlando, Fla.
9. Austin, Texas
10. Portland, Ore.
