Las Vegas loves nerds.

Sin City has nabbed another national nod, this time as one of the nation’s nerdiest cities.

Real estate website movoto.com ranked Las Vegas No. 7 on a list of the 10 nerdiest towns in the United States.

Atlanta took the crown as the country’s geekiest city.

Movoto built the list based on each city’s offering of comic book shops, video game stores and bookstores. It also considered whether the city has an ample supply of LARPing events. LARP stands for Live Action Role-Playing.

While there are fewer than five major bookstores in Las Vegas, there are more than 10 comic shops.
