    Drunkest cities in the US

    Though alcohol is enjoyed responsibly by millions of Americans every day, it is also misused and abused by many and over consumption can have serious consequences. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 18.0% of American adults regularly consume unhealthy amounts of alcohol. In some American cities, excessive drinking rates are higher.

    Wisconsin and the upper Midwest take the cake here. See if your city rates.

    Several cities in Iowa on that list as well. I was surprised NOT to see my hometown of Muscatine, Iowa on the list. I believe Muscatine has more BARS per capita than any other city in the nation.

    Heh. National Lampoon once listed Dayton, Ohio as the 'Most Boring City in America', and the next month, they printed a fake letter to the editor from the aggrieved mayor of Dayton saying that "if you think Dayton, Ohio is boring, you ought to take a gander at Mount Vernon, Iowa some time!"

    That made me laugh my head off, because I was familiar with Mount Vernon, Iowa. It was about 90 miles from my hometown, and I knew a girl who was attending college there. It was a college town without a single bar. A dry town. With a college. BORING!!!!!

    Wisconsin has a thriving AA community, and based on that list, its understandable.

    I grew up in Fond du lac, went to college in Oshkosh, partied in Appleton quite a few times, and when I was able to scalp tickets, I went to a few Packer games in my day. If you look at a map, every single one of the cities I mentioned is on the same highway, 41.

    I imagine there are a lot of drunk driving arrests on that highway, then.

    At least, I would HOPE so.

    Have driven that highway! (And had a few drinks in Green Bay and De Pere. And also Chilton - but that's Highway 32.)
