One of America’s Least Sinful Cities is in Eastern Iowa
As it turns out, Las Vegas being called Sin City isn't just marketing. A bunch of cities just got ranked from least to most sinful and Vegas took the top spot.
Wallet Hub looked at 37 different factors based off the seven deadly sins to rank 182 American cities. They used violent crimes for wrath, fraud and theft for envy, casinos for greed, strip clubs for lust, tanning salons and plastic surgery for pride, exercise for sloth, obesity and DUIs for gluttony.
Two Iowa cities made the list: Des Moines ranked at 145, putting it in the lower 40, and Cedar Rapids took the 176th spot, making it one of the least sinful cities.
The most sinful places are all huge cities:
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
- New York City
- St. Louis
The least sinful city is South Burlington, Vermont.
