Sin Cities: These Are The Top 10 Most Sinful Cities In The U.S.

The holiday season is when many people indulge in rich foods, creamy alcoholic drinks, and decadent parties. Some people have self-control, while others give in to their vices.

A recent report by WalletHub names the most sinful cities in America for the year 2022. The personal-finance website compared over 180 cities in the U.S., including the 150 most populated cities, based on the seven sins: anger and hatred, envy, vices, greed, lust, vanity, and laziness.

The report found that San Francisco has the lowest share of obese adults, while Detroit has the highest, with 49% of its population being obese.

Memphis has the highest violent crime rate in the country, while Irvine, California, has the lowest.
