Washington City Makes Top 10 Most Culturally Diverse Cities List
One of the reasons I love Washington state is for its diversity. Although I would've figured we'd have more on the list, one Washington city made the top 10 most culturally diverse cities in the United States.
Number 10 on the list belongs to Kent, Washington.
The most culturally diverse belongs to Jersey City, NJ. I would've though California would be high on the list, too, but it doesn't make the list until Oakland hits the list at number seven.
Least culturally diverse has West Virginia taking the top two spots at Parkersburg and Clarksburg in first and second place.
