Weird Facts: It Ain't No Texas - Denver Is The 'Drunkest City' In US

weird facts
Colorado and Texas residents may like their drink a little too much.

That's at least according to a study conducted by Men's Health magazine to determine the nation's most dangerously drunk cities.

Topping the list as the nation's "Drunkest City," according to the study, was Denver. Fellow Colorado communities Colorado Springs and Aurora rated third and 19th respectively. Denver was rated the most dangerously drunk city in 2006 as well.

Meanwhile, Texas joined Colorado as the only state with more than one city falling in the "top" 10 on the list, with San Antonio ranking sixth, Austin coming in seventh and Lubbock in the ninth spot.

Other communities making the top 10 list included second-ranked Anchorage, Alaska, fourth-ranked Omaha, Neb., fifth-ranked Fargo, N.D., eighth-ranked Fresno, Calif., and 10th-ranked Milwaukee, Wis.

The magazine says it looked at factors such as annual death rates due to alcoholic liver disease, drunk-driving arrests and the percentage of fatal accidents involving intoxicated motorists. Also factored in is the report card from Mothers Against Drunk Driving on state efforts to cut down on excessive drinking.

On the other end of the scale, Durham, N.C., was named the least dangerously drunk city, earning an A-plus from MADD.

Because self-destructive drivers tend to buy alcohol impulsively and at late hours, the magazine recommended readers visit the Alcohol Policy Information System's Web site to review which states put strict limits on where and when alcohol can be sold.
