Southern Nevada no place for vampires, rankings show

It’s news bad enough to drain the blood from even the strongest vampire. Southern Nevada is home to some of the worst locales for our blood-sucking friends.

Henderson and parts of Las Vegas were on the list of worst cities for vampires, according to rankings by Lawn Love.

The Las Vegas areas include Sunrise Manor, Enterprise, Spring Valley and Paradise.

In total, 200 cities were ranked, with Naperville, Illinois, leading the way as the best city for vampires.

The rankings looked at various factors including the number of cloudy days, churches, homes with basements, blood centers and garlic festivals. While the rankings are mostly tongue-in-cheek, they also call attention to a national blood shortage and the need for more blood donors, including a major shortage of type O blood.
