Foursquare Ranks Americas Most Patriotic Cities

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- This Fourth of July, care to take a stab at which U.S. city is the most patriotic?

You might guess Boston, with its world-famous Boston Pops concert and impressive fireworks show.

Or maybe New York, with the spectacular Macy’s fireworks display over the Hudson River.

Or how about San Diego, with its large military presence and beautiful miles of beaches, perfect for a Fourth of July barbecue?

Those are all good guesses. But they’re all wrong.

This July 4, Foursquare ranked the nation’s most patriotic cities, the cities that had the highest jump in check-ins at parks, firework shows and parades last July 4.

The 10 most patriotic cities, according to Foursquare:

1.    Knoxville, Tenn.
2.    Oklahoma City
3.    Raleigh, N.C.
4.    San Antonio
5.    Houston
6.    Sarasota, Fla.
7.    Phoenix
8.    Baltimore
9.    Charlotte, N.C.
10.  Kansas City, Mo.
