The new year is almost upon us and it鈥檚 time for reflection, self-improvement and turning over a new leaf. But before we get to that, we need to spend New Year鈥檚 Eve doing it up real BIG with plenty of confetti, fireworks, glitzy accessories and lots and LOTS of bubbly鈥 and possibly spending the day after nursing our hangovers. Some cities definitely party hardy on NYE more than others. Trulia, an online residential real estate site, crunched all the numbers on their site to determine which metros are most likely to go all out on New Year鈥檚 and the results might surprise you.


Congratulations, San Francisco. You鈥檝e won the title for both hardest partying city on NYE and also most hungover the day after. Trulia sourced their data by measuring the number of 鈥渘ightlife establishments, bars, comfort food restaurants, drugstores and breweries per 10,000 households鈥 in order to figure out which cities partied the hardest and San Francisco has 41.7 on average of thoese and 28.8 of just poppin鈥 nightlife hotspots (cue DJ Snake鈥檚 鈥淭urn Down For What鈥). The same data also listed the town that is least likely to rage, which is *whomp whomp* Birmingham, Alabama.


The city most likely to recoup quickly post-partying is鈥 Worcester, Massachusetts. This number was determined by the number of drugstores and comfort food restaurants per 10,000 households, and Worcester has 17.2 of those.

FYI, best remedy to preventing a hangover is moderation and hydration. Happy 2016!
