Which is the most fun city in America? 1

If you’re planning to go on a fun trip with your friends and family but don’t exactly know which city in America to visit, then you’ve come to the right place.

People have different ideas of having fun. Some enjoy eating out in restaurants, hanging out in bars, or participating in outdoor sports, while others like visiting amusement parks, going to the movies, or playing video games. With such diverse preferences, it’s ideal to visit a city that packs a little bit of everything for everyone.

And since having fun can also be pricey – with the average American spending over $2,900 on entertainment each year, personal finance website WalletHub conducted a study to help Americans and even foreign tourists determine which U.S. cities have the greatest number and variety of fun yet cost-effective activity options.
