Hat tip to the Pacific Northwest on the 4th of July

Happy 4th of July everyone.

As a way to celebrate, I thought it might be fun to take a look at the most patriotic US cities, especially when I saw that the number one spot was right in our own back yard!

Kudos to Portland, Oregon for landing in first place. Not far behind in fourth place was Seattle, Washington.

To create the list, the designers looked at voter turnout, flag sales, fireworks spending, spending on vets and volunteer rate. We know that the Pacific Northwest has some of the best and most active volunteers in the world: Optimist Club members! With that kind of commitment, it's no wonder that statistic brought our cities to the top of the list.
