New York offers the nation's broadest range of options for recreation and entertainment, the study says.
America's financial capital is also its most fun city, according to an analysis by Portfolio.com. New York offers the nation's broadest range of options for recreation and entertainment, the study says. Several factors make the Big Apple the clear leader: It's the number-one market in three of the study's seven categories (shopping, food and drink, and culture), and it's a runner-up in three others, ranking second for high-impact sports and third for popular entertainment and low-impact sports. It also overwhelms all other markets in sheer volume: The New York City area has 431 museums and historical sites. That's more than the combined total in Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas, the next three largest metropolitan areas in terms of population.
The Top 10 Most Fun Cities list includes:
1) New York
5) Los Angeles
6) San Francisco
8) Portland, Maine
