Honolulu is more of a party town than one might realize — at least when it comes to celebrating on New Year’s Eve.
Real estate website Trulia.com ranked Honolulu No. 7 in its top-10 list of Most Hungover Cities released last month. The higher the ranking, the more likely residents are to start 2017 with a nasty hangover. Honolulu didn’t make the list in 2015.
The website refreshed its “Hangover Index” using data from Yelp.com on nightlife establishments and party supply stores per capita, U.S. Census data on adults age 18-34 and binge-drinking survey results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The complete 2016 hangover index:
1. San Francisco
2. San Diego
4. Bellingham, Wash.
5. Charleston, S.C.
8. New Orleans
9. El Paso, Texas
10. San Antonio
