The Most Educated Place in Each State

Business Insider compiled this cool map that uses census data to determine the most educated place in each state. Their calculations are based on the percentage of adults over 25 with a bachelor's or higher degree.
Mental Floss readers noted some interesting details about the map, like the how many of the cities are on state borders and also how the cities seem to correlate with the most high-income parts of the states as well.It's also interesting to see how drastically the numbers vary across the country. In North Dakota, for example, Fargo is the most educated city with 39% of adults having earned a bachelor's degree, whereas Lareda, California leads the country with an impressive 89.5%.
You can see a full-sized version of the map on Business Insider.
