Portlanders Among Most Likely to Have a Hangover on New Year’s Day

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

 

According to a new study, Portland is one of the top American cities most likely to have a hangover after a little too much partying on New Year’s Eve.

Portland came in at number 10 in the a study by Trulia. That likely hangover is spurred by the city’s ranking at number four on the list of cities most likely to party hard. When they need to aide that headache or upset stomach, Portlanders are in luck. The city was the 14th best place to recover from a hangover, according to Trulia.

The study was conducted by remaining neighborhood amenities data on Trulia’s site, which was compiled via data from Yelp. They examined which cities have the most breweries, bars, and general nightlife per 10,000 households. They also layered the data with the highest number of comfort food restaurants and drugstores to form their “Hangover Index.”

San Francisco, California will have the worst hangover, according to Trulia, followed by Boston, Massachusetts and Las Vegas, Nevada. San Francisco is also the most likely to “party hard”, followed by Las Vegas and New Orleans, Louisiana. 

The best hangover cures can be found in the Northeast, according to the study. Worcester, Massachusetts, New Haven, Connecticut and Cambridge, Massachusetts lead the way in the hangover recovery category.
