25 Cities to Avoid During the Zombie Apocalypse

Do you know where you’ll be when the zombie apocalypse hits? While we can’t help you protect your brains, we can shed light on the worst cities to seek shelter in when the undead hit the streets.
Trulia leveraged our local info maps to find out where zombies are most likely to thrive in the U.S., using four criteria: highest Walk Score®, lowest density of hardware stores, highest density of hospitals, and most congestion.
Island dwellers beware: Honolulu, HI, came in at number one! (Oddly enough, Atlanta, GA, didn’t even make the list.) While we don’t know exactly where Terminus is located, Rick and his crew should definitely steer clear of these 25 cities.
  • Highest Walk Score® — Easy for the “walkers” to get around.
  • Lowest density of hardware stores — Making it difficult for humans to protect themselves from attack.
  • Highest density of hospitals — Zombies would have quick access to defenseless “food.”
  • Most congestion — Making it difficult for humans to run from zombies.

Here's the full list (note the complete hopelessness of people living in the San Francisco Bay Area, the East Coast, and Texas):
  1. Honolulu, Hawaii
  2. New York City, New York
  3. Newark, New Jersey
  4. Boston, Massachusetts
  5. Washington, D.C.
  6. San Francisco, California
  7. Miami, Florida
  8. Orange County, California
  9. Los Angeles, California
  10. Seattle, Washington
  11. Chicago, Illinois
  12. Denver, Colorado
  13. Portland, Oregon
  14. Middlesex County, New Jersey
  15. Las Vegas, Nevada
  16. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  17. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  18. Austin, Texas
  19. San Jose, California
  20. Baltimore, Maryland
