If you are looking for a place to survive the zombie apocalypse, you might wanna move out of Nashville. According to a recent study by Lawn Love, a lawn care service company, Nashville ranks as the 58h best city in the U.S. for zombie preparedness. The study analyzed 200 cities based on various factors such as population density, gun ownership, food supply, and natural disasters. It's not all bad. Nashville ranks pretty high in terms of access to weapons and supplies, but a high population density really hurts our chances. The city has a population density of 1,388 people per square mile, which is higher than the ideal range of 500 to 1,000 people per square mile for zombie survival
Moreover, Nashville has a low risk of natural disasters such as earthquakes, hurricanes, and wildfires, which could worsen the situation during a zombie apocalypse.
The study looked at 200 major Metro areas, so Nashville isn't BAD - Miramar, Florida actually ranks last on the list. But we're nowhere near the top of ideal Zombie hideout spots. Houston, Texas is the #1 city on the list, based largely on ample access to weapons and supplies. New York City, San Antonio, Miami, and LA round out the top 5.
I gotta be honest though...you know the old saying about bear attacks? "You don't have to be faster than the bear, you just have to be faster than the other person"? I feel like the same applies to Zombies, right? If there's a Zombie apocalypse, I just need to be faster than other people. Why not go to Broadway where there's DEFINITELY going to be someone drunker and slower than you?
