According to Food & Wine Magazine the West Coast is the home to the top vineyards in the U.S.   And when you consider that wine grapes need at least 1,400 hours of annual sunlight during the growing season to ripen properly, it makes sense that this portion of the country would be optimal.

How Moving Companies Have Changed the U.S. Landscape

January 11th, 2012 - 3:41 PM
Since 1790 the U.S. census has been tracking the mean center of the U.S. population.

Cities With The Highest College Student Population

November 16th, 2011 - 2:01 PM

Most high school students beginning their college search will probably tell you that there's a little more to choosing a college than just educational opportunities (much to their parents chagrin).  They might even tell you that while the campus is a hugely important decision-maker, the surrounding city is just as important.  The college experience reaches far beyond the classroom walls— students care about what there is to do off-campus too.
