Who's having the most fun in America?
While your idea of fun may be different from the next person, WalletHub decided to compare all 50 states to find out which places make it easy (and relatively difficult) to enjoy yourself.
A whole host of factors were taken into consideration, including number of attractions, weather, shoreline miles, beach quality, access to national parks, and variety of arts, entertainment and recreation establishments, along with per-capita reviews of amusement parks, golf courses, movie theaters, arcades, fitness centers, skiing facilities, marinas, state fairs and events, and restaurants. How much people, states and local governments invest in recreation was taken into account as well.
All told, the analysis accounted for 26 metrics, then weighted them based on a state's population and size, so small states like Rhode Island could be compared to large states like Texas.
So where should you go to have a good time? Read on!
