Study ranks North Las Vegas 2nd 'most boring city' in U.S.

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Don't shoot the messenger, but North Las Vegas was just named one of the most boring cities in the United States.  Yikes.

How did North Las Vegas get such an unawesome title? 

Movoto, the website behind the "study," collected data from 2010 U.S. Census business listings, looking for things like nightlife per capita, live music venues per capita, fast food per capita, etc. Cities were then ranked from one to 100 (ps: you don't want to be near '100' on the scale.) North Las Vegas came in with a 78.75.

Okay, we’ve got to ask: What’s going on here? This city has Las Vegas in the name, shouldn’t it be full of thrills, sin, fun, and crazy? As it turns out, no, this place is absolutely none of that. Mostly, it’s just kind of a place where people live, and they’re not exactly the party type.

And it goes on:

Only about 10 percent of the population was between the ages of 18 and 34, and the nightlife ranked 86th, so if you’re in your twenties and looking to party, this should not be a destination on your list. There were not many non-fast food restaurants, compared to cities of similar sizes, and there’s not much in the way of active life either.

And one last zing:

On the bright side, residents have a ton of excitement right next door. So, while they may not be able to have a whole lot of fun in their hometown, they can forage for excitement in Sin City pretty easily.

The number one most boring spot in America? Lubbock, Tex. (We won't comment if we agree or not.)

Rounding out the rest of the top five are Chesapeake, V.A. at No. 3, Irving, Tex., at 4, and Fort Wayne, Ind., at 5. 

If it makes you feel better, Henderson came in at No. 16.
