It might not be as good as being ranked one of the most affordable cities, one of the healthiest cities, or even the best all-around city in America, but Minneapolis made it on the top ten list of sweatiest cities in America and I guess we'll take it!

The study, done by a marketing team for Honeywell Fans, used data from the U.S. census Bureau and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association to find 'hot spots' around the country.

Using average summer temperatures, proximity to large bodies of water, abundance of fitness and recreational sports facilities and sports teams per capita, the marketers determined the city's overall sweatiness.

The list is mostly taken up by southern cities, but Minneapolis ranked seventh overall. Charlotte, North Carolina was number one.

The top ten list

1. Charlotte, North Carolina
2. Raleigh, North Carolina
3. St. Louis, Missouri
