Four Florida cities made it on WalletHub’s list of most fun cities in the U.S.. Everyone has a different definition of fun. Some people like to enjoy outside activities like parks, beaches, theme parks, or nature trails. Others prefer an exciting night life with trendy bars, restaurants and clubs. With so many preferences, WalletHub had to define U.S. cities that packs a little bit of everything into one area. Thankfully in Florida, we have so many fun and cost-effective activities to do. Which is probably why four cities in Florida made it on the top 20 list of most fun cities in America.
With so many people moving to the Sunshine State, it’s not surprising to find so many Florida cities on this study. Orlando was named the second most fun city in America. Although the theme parks may not be cost-effective, there’s still plenty to do/see, especially if you’re a foodie. Orlando and Miami were tied for most restaurants per capita. Just a few hours away, there’s even more to do in Champa Bay. Tampa was tied for first in most festivals per capita. To our surprise, St. Petersburg did make the list at number 36, two spots behind Jacksonville.
To help Americans find the most fun cities with cost-effective options, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cities based on 65 key metrics. They range from fitness centers per capita to movie costs to average open hours of breweries. Check out the full list of most fun cities in the U.S. here.
