Las Vegas ranks 10th among saddest cities

Of 100 cities, Las Vegas was ranked the 10th saddest in America recently, but there is one thing to smile about: Reno ranked ninth.

According to a ranking from Men’s Health Magazine, Las Vegas made the top 10 list of saddest cities. Rankings were based on suicide and unemployment rates, along with percentages of households that use antidepressants and the number of people who reported feelings of sadness all or most of the time.

St. Petersburg, Fla., was named the saddest, with Detroit; Memphis, Tenn.; Tampa, Fla.; and Louisville, Ky., rounding out the top five saddest, respectively.

But possibly the saddest aspect of the list was the grades that were awarded. Las Vegas got an F.

Los Angeles was awarded a D+, New York got a C- and Salt Lake City received a B-.

Honolulu, ranked first on the list of "Blues-proof Towns," was the only city to receive an A+. Also receiving high marks were Boston; St. Paul, Minn.; and Madison, Wis.

Here’s the complete list.
