Ok, so we have the lowest credit score across the country, but at least people aren't drinking their credit down the tubes! I saw this list on Forbes after I heard about the list on the radio yesterday. DFW is ranked #27. We're behind cities such as Kansas City (#16). I guess there is nothing better to do in Kansas City except drink since a friend of mine says people don't relocate there unless they're foreced to.
We got beat out by Phoenix (#22)... isn't that a bunch of older, retired people for the most part? Yes, I know it's getting younger and younger every year, but Phoenix is none for the place to go to retire.
I guess the Denver/Boulder (#15) people need to drink to stay warm. I always thought of Denver as a very conservative place.
Providence is #9. Maybe those numbers were skewed because of lack of actual people there. When you're dealing with millions of people in Dallas, I can see how Providence would squeeze there above us.
I was surprised to see Vegas (#14) and New Orleans (#24) out of the top 10, but I guess they were counting residents, not visitors... Very interesting list in deed.
