The Titusville – Palm Bay – Melbourne metro area ranks among Business Insider’s “Most Patriotic Cities.”
According to Businessinsider.com, Brevard County is #7 in the nation for their three categories:
1. Percentage of people who are veterans, according to the 2012 American Community Survey.
2. The percentage of residents 18 and over who voted in the 2012 presidential election.
3. Ranking of the best cities for Fourth of July celebrations based on data from Wallet Hub.
Business Insider weighted the categories with 50% going to veterans, 30% going to voting turnout, and 20% from the Fourth of July celebrations.
“This July 4th, three cities come together for an explosion of patriotism. Between Palm Bay’s food truck rally featuring flavors from across the U.S., to Melbourne’s ‘Salute to America’ concert, to Titusville’s Red, White and BOOM! fireworks spectacular — there’s no shortage of ‘Merica on the eastern Florida coast.”
