A Seattle rainbow

San Francisco may have better restaurants, weather, shopping and cocktails. But here’s one area where Seattle outshines the city by the bay.

According to a survey by Travel + Leisure magazine, Seattle has the most tech-savvy people in the country. Yep, we’re geekier in Seattle than our counterparts in San Francisco (which actually finished second). Seattle also is #1 when it comes to wireless coverage, ahead of Salt Lake City, Kansas City, Portland and Austin, and #1 in terms of intelligence.

The Travel + Leisure survey looked at a number of factors beyond tech, with a cool online tool that allows users to do a side-by-side comparison of two cities.

As you’ll see in the face-off between San Fran and Seattle, we lose in most categories. (Hey, in addition to tech, we’re still kicking ass in terms of flea markets, cleanliness and, of course, coffee).
