We've known for quite a while that Colorado is one of the smartest states in the country.

Because we Coloradans are so smart.

But what are the smartest communities within Colorado?

The folks at Zippia set out to discover the answer to this question, using census data to determine the number of residents with at least a high school education, as well as the dropout total.

The usual suspects — Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs — didn't finish in the top ten. Those that did are mostly near these communities, however. They're mostly small and affluent, with the number one choice also being a prominent tourist attraction.
