Credit Card comparison site Card Hub released their list of The Best & Worst Cities to Celebrate Independence Day in 2013 today, comparing the 30 largest metropolitan and popular vacation areas in the United States.
The list was based on variables such as weather forecast, hotel prices and entertainment options, number of bars and restaurants, and legality of fireworks. Los Angeles came in at number one, and Chicago was runner up, while Kansas City received the bottom spot on the list.
According to Card Hub, Detroit, which made the top 10, is the only major United States city that legally allows the sale and use of fireworks. New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago, numbers 4, 1, and 2, respectively all had the greatest amount of bars and entertainment options.
CEO of Card Hub, Odysseas Papadimitriou said, “While the fact that July 4 falls on a Thursday this year may prevent some folks from scheduling prolonged vacations around the holiday, plenty of people will undoubtedly use it as an excuse for a long-weekend getaway.”
