Where Does Boise Rank On The Naughty Or Nice List?
It's that time of year again when we all have to answer a very important question. Typically it's the man in the red suit asking but for all intensive purposes today you should ask yourself... Have I been naughty or nice? Apparently Santa is going to be spending more time in certain cities based on who's been smoking, drinking, gambling, and defrauding the most. As you might expect Las Vegas continues to reign as the most sinful city in America. The good news is that is Boise is nowhere near the top of the list, as a matter of fact we're near the bottom. Boise came in at number 170 of 182. Nampa is a little more naughty and came in at number 136. See the top and bottom 10 on the list below. WalletHub has the full list here.
