I bet you can guess which Iowa cities are the two in the top 20 drunkest cities in America! For the record, seven of the top 10 drunkest cities in America are in WISCONSIN!! Appleton, Wisconsin was deemed to be the drunkest city in America. How do they scientifically compile this list? It's based on how often people binge drink and how often they drink heavily during the week. Heavy drinking is characterized by drinking 4 to 5 drinks in a sitting or 15 or more drinks a week.
Not a huge surprise that Ames came in number 8 on this list and Iowa City is in 19th place. 19 of the top 20 were from this region of the country with cities in North Dakota, Minnesota and Nebraska making the list. I'm not sure we should be proud of this?
