Rest easy, Fresno. The central San Joaquin Valley is not home to tasty people, so zombies won’t come here first if the world becomes overrun by the dead.
But there is some bad news. Fresno is sandwiched between six of the top 25 most appetizing U.S. cities for zombies, according to a fun map Trulia released Monday.
The San Francisco-based online real estate data company lists Honolulu home to the tastiest people. The map is based on higher hospital density, more congestion, fewer hardware stores and higher walk score.
“When the world crumbles and you become a member of (television show) “The Walking Dead,” what city would you shamble to?” the map says.
Never miss a local story.
In California, Los Angeles is ranked No. 9, San Jose is No. 19, San Francisco is No. 6 and Oakland is No. 21. Las Vegas, just east of the state, is No. 15. Fresno lies in the middle.
In another Halloween treat, Trulia also has heat maps that show the level of ghost sightings and vampire bites in communities across the country.
A quick search in Fresno shows the immediate area around downtown Fresno, south to Calwa and north to Ashlan Avenue is “a ghost hunters delight” with spectral sightings happening daily. The probability of seeing a ghost diminishes as you travel out of the city.
Reports of vampire bites is highest within the city limits, too. The map says to “suspect everyone” and to stay inside. If vampires were real, Trulia said, they would most likely congregate where blood is readily available. Hospitals and medical centers are used as the data points for the map.
