The Drunkest City in Idaho Isn’t as Obvious as You Think
Be it potato vodka or craft beer, Idahoans love the sauce.
Who loves it the most? Good luck guessing this one.
According to the Center for Disease Control, excessive drinking is considered to be four or more drinks in a single sitting for an adult woman, and five for an adult man. (Sidenote: Raise your hand if four or five drinks in one sitting isn't near enough) (*raises hand*) In Idaho, one city rises above all the rest when it comes to binge drinking and heavy drinking.
Good ol' Coeur d'Alene.
In Coeur d'Alene, 18% of adults admit to binge drinking or heavy drinking. I find this hard to believe since there are literally dozens of bars withing walking distance in downtown Boise, but that's what the study says. You can get the full results of the study here.
