Lubbock Ranked Most Boring City by Movoto.com
The City of Lubbock has been ranked as the most boring bigger city in America by a website.
Real estate website Movoto.com ranked Lubbock first in their list of the 10 most boring cities in America.
Movoto said that they created the ranking by making a list of the 100 most populated places in the United States, and then collected data from the 2010 U.S. Census.
They looked at nightlife per capita, which includes bars and clubs, live music venues per capita, arts and entertainment, fast food and non-fast food restaurants, and population density.
According to their website, they said that “Where Lubbock really took a nosedive was the dining department, so much so that it ranked dead last in the non-fast food restaurant category.”
They did say that the Hub City was ranked in the middle for nightlife, and the site rated Lubbock as one of the best places for professional women.
Lubbock also had the lowest average commute time of any city in their ranking, and a good job market in their best places for professional women ranking.
Other Texas cities that made their boring cities top 10 are Irving, Plano, and Laredo.
Daniel Horsch with VisitLubbock.org wrote a rebuttal to Movoto, inviting them to experience some of the amenities featured in Lubbock.
Horsch said “As you’ll see when you visit, Lubbock is about quality, not quantity. Outsiders agree as well, in 2012 alone, more than 5.5 million people came to experience Lubbock. We hope you will as well!”
