Rochester is without a doubt a family-oriented town.  Couple that quality with decent food, and one might expect that Rochester is a hot spot for Thanksgiving.

Lo and behold, it is.  I fully realize that the following ranking is rather laughable, yet I find it truly remarkable that underappreciated Rochester always seems to find itself on such lists.  The study sought to identify the Top 10 Best Places for Thanksgiving Celebrations.  The 100 most populated metro areas were analyzed based on the increase in inbound airport traffic, turkey consumption, Pepto-Bismol sales,  and a consumer poll which essentially assessed the size of celebrations.  The winners were:

  1. Akron, OH
  2. West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL
  3. Columbus, OH
  4. Fort Worth-Arlington, TX
  5. Las Vegas, NV
  6. Rochester, NY
  7. Salt Lake City, UT
  8. Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
  9. Philadelphia, PA
  10. Warren-Troy-Farmington Hills, MI
