Oh No…These 10 Cities Are The Most Sinful In Virginia

Perhaps it’s our somewhat Puritanical roots, but Virginia seems to rank a little lower nationally when it comes to “sinful” activities. As you might remember, we recently did a story on the rates of excessive drinking in the state, and even with some counties ranking on the high side, Virginia overall ranked as one of the drier states. So, we thought it would be interesting to look at some other vices.

According to Find The Home, an online real estate and city data organization, the national average for vice businesses (liquor stores, casinos, and adult entertainment establishments) is 2.4 establishments per 10,000 people. In Virginia, the average is 1.19 establishments per 10,000 residents. And while we don’t have any cities threatening to take on Las Vegas as the new “Sin City,” these cities and counties definitely push the limits.

What do you think about the cities and counties that made this list? Does it seem accurate? We would love to hear what you have to say, especially if you have thoughts on what tends to lead to higher vice rates in an area. Be sure to share your thoughts below!
