SARASOTA, FL. - Not only do Sarasota residents have pride for the Suncoast, they're also among the most patriotic in the country.

Location-based social networking site Foursquare has released a list of the nation's most patriotic cities.

Sarasota is one of the top 10, coming in at number 6. The list is based on which cities had the highest jump in check-ins at parks, fireworks shows and parades last Fourth of July.

Topping the list is Knoxville, Tenn, Oklahoma City, Raleigh, N.C., San Antonio and Houston.
