USA Today has released a list of Drunkest Cities in Each State and the Beaufort-Bluffton-Hilton Head area was named the drunkest in all of South Carolina.

We’ll drink to that.

Hey…we’re known for lots of things. Maybe this had something to do with Beaufort being named the ‘Happiest Seaside Town’ in America a few years ago, but, who knows.

The rankings, released Tuesday, list the booziest city in each state using Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data on excessive drinking, among other factors.

“Some 19.3 of adults in the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort metro area report drinking excessively, more than the 16.6 percent excessive drinking rate for South Carolina as a whole and the largest share of any metro area in the state,” according to the list.

“Some 19.3% of adults in the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort metro area report drinking excessively, more than the 16.6% excessive drinking rate for South Carolina as a whole and the largest share of any metro area in the state,” according to the list.

It also said that “wealthy individuals are more likely to participate in activities related to drinking, such as going out to eat, going on vacation, and socializing with coworkers, and are more likely to drink heavily than the average American.”
