SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) – Travel + Leisure readers have voted Seattle America’s Techiest City.

As part of their annual America’s Favorite Cities survey, readers judged how tech-savvy locals seem and the reliability of wireless coverage. Editors then combined the two sets of results to come up with the list of techiest cities.

In order to place high on the final list, cities had to score very well in both categories. Salt Lake City came in second place for its wireless coverage, but only 20th when it came to tech-savvy. And while New York City has plenty of brainpower, its spotty signals dragged it down to No. 17.

Seattle’s great wireless coverage and tech-savvy locals pushed it to the top spot.

The city also ranked first in intelligence and coffee.
