Warm states like Florida and Arizona have reputations for being popular SNOWBIRD destinations . . . but that doesn’t mean their cities shut down at 5:00 P.M., after all the senior citizens have finished dinner.
There’s a new report out on “America’s Wildest Cities.” It was compiled using many factors, including alcohol and binge drinking stats . . . marijuana use . . . harder drugs like cocaine . . . casinos . . . and strip clubs.
In the end, the highest “wild” score went to Reno, Nevada. Portland, Oregon is second, followed by Traverse City, Michigan . . . Las Vegas . . . Milwaukee . . . and Pittsburgh.
But there are also a lot of not-so-sleepy Florida and Arizona cities at the top, like Tucson (#6) . . . Sarasota (#8) . . . Phoenix (#9) . . . and Tampa (#11).
They’re even ahead of cities like: New Orleans (#15) . . . Atlantic City (#16) . . . Nashville (#17) . . . Los Angeles (#30) . . . and New York City (#40).
Of the 50 cities they considered, El Paso, Texas ranked as the LEAST wild.
