Scottsdale among best cities in US for keeping New Year’s resolutions
PHOENIX — The new year is right around the corner, which means plenty of people across Arizona are gearing up to write their New Year’s resolutions.
While most people tend to give up on their resolutions soon after the year begins, residents in one Arizona city are among the best in the country for keeping them.
According to a recent study from WalletHub, Scottsdale ranked among the top five cities in the country for keeping their New Year’s resolutions.
The Phoenix-area city came in at No. 4 on the list, only being beaten out by San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle.
The personal finance company ranked Scottsdale at such a high spot due to its accessibility to gyms and parts and the amount of money a household made.
Scottsdale also dominated the financial resolution category because of the average annual income of its residents. Its easy access to gyms and parks also helped residents fulfill their health resolutions.
But Scottsdale was not the only Arizona city to make the list: Chandler came in at No. 27, while Tempe, Gilbert and Phoenix followed shortly behind at Nos. 37, 38 and 39, respectively.
Peoria also cracked the Top 50 — but barely, coming in at No. 49. Mesa, Tucson and Glendale also cracked the Top 100, coming in at Nos. 69, 83 and 92, respectively.
