1214lowreshomespun.jpgRISMEDIA, Dec. 14, 2007- Eventful.com recently revealed which cities have the most going on, providing a valuable insight into the character and vitality of each area. In its first annual ‘Most Eventful Cities’ rankings, Eventful.com lists U.S. cities by the number and type of local events.Eventful looked at all U.S. cities with a population of 100,000 or more to find the locations with the most events. The nation’s largest cities such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago appeared in the top ten. However, several cities with smaller populations also reached the top of the rankings because of their disproportionately high number of events. These include: San Francisco (pop. 744,041) in third place, with many community, performing arts and singles events; Tucson, Ariz. (pop. 518,956) in sixth place, boasting many family and school or alumni events; and Washington D.C. (pop. 581,530) in tenth place, with its many neighborhood, education and political events.

The ‘Most Eventful Cities’ rankings also reveal which cities are best for certain types of activities. For instance, San Diego ranked highest for pet-related events, Los Angeles has the highest number of book-related activities just ahead of Houston, and New York tops the list for singles events, with San Francisco coming in second.

“The ‘Most Eventful Cities’ rankings provide a fascinating snapshot of how people spend their time across the nation,” said Jordan Glazier, CEO of Eventful, Inc. “Events are at the heart of each city’s character and vitality, so it’s interesting to see which cities offer the greatest breadth of activities for residents and visitors.”

The 2007 ‘Most Eventful Cities’ rankings are based on the total number of events listed on Eventful that took place in each U.S. city from August 2006 – August 2007.
