Survey says... High Plains fizzles on Fourth

Credit nytimes.com

If you’re looking for a great place to celebrate the 4th of July, the High Plains is not the place to do it.  WalletHub did a nationwide ranking of 100 places to celebrate based on how well they balance cost and fun.  Fourteen metrics were used including the number of food establishments, fireworks laws, attractions, and weather.

If you want to travel, the closest cities making the list are:

  • Denver, Colorado- number 63
  • Wichita, Kansas- 70 
  • Lubbock, Texas- 97

The best city to celebrate Independence Day is Richmond, Virginia, and the worst is Durham, North Carolina.
