Lawn Love (of all places!) dug through a boatload of data to come up with 2021’s Best Cities for Surviving a Zombie Apocalypse. As you can see from the infographic above they have listed the 10 best as well as the 10 worst cities for living through a zombie end-of-the-world scenario.
In order to get their rankings they looked at:
- highest/lowest share of the population in good health
- highest/lowest share of homes with basements
- most/fewest stores with hunting gear
- best/worst trail access
- most/fewest military bases
Since Florida soil isn’t conducive to basements, I’m surprised that we had two cities that placed in the top 10 for safest. I was also surprised to see that my current city (Daytona Beach, Fl.) and my birth city (Terre Haute, In.) didn’t even make the top 200 of safest cities.
If there was a zombie apocalypse I would want to be in an area that wasn’t over-populated and had a nice year round climate. The Florida coast would probably be a good choice since you could fish year round making food one less worry.
If you click over to Lawn Love’s site you’ll see the full zombie apocalypse infographic and how cities rated in each area. You can even look up your hometown to see how it ranked. Then you’ll know if you’re likely to survive or become one of the walking dead.
