With Thanksgiving is just around the corner and millions of people still shopping during the holiday, personal-finance website WalletHub has released its 2019’s Best Places to Go for Thanksgiving, and the results for Cleveland, as well as Ohio, aren't very encouraging.

Cleveland finished in the bottom five, 96th overall, in the study which compared the 100 largest U.S. cities across 20 key metrics. They range from cost of Thanksgiving dinner and share of delayed flights to volunteer opportunities per capita and forecasted precipitation.

Cleveland finished second worst in the weather catagory, as well as sixth worst in safety.

No Ohio city finished inside the top 50 for WalletHub's study. Cincinnati finished 52nd overall, while Columbus (82nd) and Toledo (90th) also finished inside the bottom portion.

The one positive stat came from the buckeye state's capitol, as Columbus did finish top ten in affordability for Thanksgiving.

The top five best places to go for Thanksgiving, according to WalletHub, are:

  1. St. Paul, Minnesota
  2. Scottsdale, Arizona
  3. Virginia Beach, Virginia
  4. Orlando, Florida
  5. Denver, Colorado
