FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – You might recall back in 2005 men's health magazine ranked the summit city as the dumbest in the nation. You could say we have come a long way, baby.

According to a new survey, Fort Wayne is 35th smartest city in America, and the smartest city in the Hoosier state.

That’s according to real estate blog www.movoto.com.

The ranking uses six criteria that include: the number of colleges, libraries, media outlets and museums in each city along with public school ranking and education levels.

Fort Wayne is still trying to shake the fattest city in the nation which was bestowed on the city in 2002 by the CDC.
