Charlotte Listed as One of Top Patriotic Cities

Any American will tell you the United States is a patriotic country, but as we mark another Independence Day, can any city stake a claim to be the most patriotic? Foursquare, the popular app that enables mobile check-ins at venues across the nation, has applied an interesting formula to try to provide an answer.

According to Foursquare's analysis, the USA's most patriotic city is ... Knoxville, Tenn., followed by Oklahoma City and Raleigh, N.C. Foursquare bases the list on an analysis of activity from July 4, 2012, when they found that residents of these cities were most likely to check in at parks, parades and fireworks celebrations. Here's a look at the top ten:

1. Knoxville, Tenn.

2. Oklahoma City

3. Raleigh, N.C.

4. San Antonio, Texas

5. Houston

6. Sarasota, Fla.

7. Phoenix

8. Baltimore

9. Charlotte, N.C.

10. Kansas City, Mo.
