Surviving Thanksgiving

We’re questioning their methods on coming up with this list but apparently Detroit is not a place people want to travel to for Thanksgiving.

Out of 100 cities in the United States we weren’t even close to making the top 10, top 50 or top 90 for that matter! In fact, Toledo, OH landed higher on the list than our beloved Detroit Rock City.

According to a study on Wallet Hub, based on our Thanksgiving celebrations and traditions, ‘affordability’ rank, safety and accessibility, ‘giving thanks’ rank and Turkey Day weather forecast, we landed at 95.

95!!! The only worse places to be apparently are Cleveland, OH (duh), Fremont, CA, Anchorage, AK, Oakland, CA and Stockton, CA. How Toledo came in at 90 is beyond us. Coming in at #1 was St. Paul, Minnesota which we’re totally questioning.

They’re clearly not taking into account our lovely Thanksgiving Day Parade followed by a more than likely disappointing traditional football game with our Detroit Lions at Ford Field.
