Jacksonville Ranked As One Of Heaviest Drinking Cities In America
Jacksonville Fl - According to a recent study conducted by Sharecare, Jacksonville is ranked in the top 10 heaviest drinking cities for men and women. Some find this poll startling but some find it as getting Jacksonville on the "map".
Since the beginning, there has always been alot of drinking in Jacksonville but why so much? The answer lies in the fact that we are such a big city, not by population but by size and there is so little to do - or are there other factors to blame?
Until the last few years, people have been separated by rivers, the ditch at the beach & the lack of interest to drive to another area of town to find something to do. New campaigns have been sparking the interest of locals to travel out of their neighborhood to try something new causing this trend to change.
