Greenville, S.C. – Move aside Denver and Phoenix, it seems Chicagoans are the biggest thrill-seekers in the country, according to the new BFGoodrich Tires Adrenaline Index. The tire maker surveyed 3,500 Americans across the country, revealing that more than one-third of Americans are self-proclaimed thrill seekers who thrive on new adventures and enjoy activities that will provide an adrenaline rush.
Chicago topped the list as the thrill-seeking capital of the U.S., with 58 percent of Chicagoans saying that they seek out adventure or adrenaline-fuelled activities. New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Orlando rounded out the top five cities with the most adrenaline. Miami residents actually put their money where their mouth is, with thrill seekers saying they spent an average of $1,637 annually on extreme activities, compared to the national average of $733.
