WalletHub recently released their most fun cities in America list and we were surprised and disappointed where Philadelphia ended up on the list. We aren’t really surprised by number one here but definitely think that Philly should’ve been much higher!
Most Fun Cities In America
In this WalletHub article, they factored in the most, three major categories to assign the ultimate ranking: Entertainment and Recreation, Nightlife and Parties, and Cost. There are about a total of 65 different considerations made while going into the list, find out more here.
A WalletHub Analyst, Cassandra Hope, at this to stay about choosing these rankings. “All cities have a variety of activities,” she said, “but some shine more than others when it comes to things like parks and beaches, live music and comedy, partying, sports culture, or fine dining.”
When it comes to cost, they also factor in more than just the cost of a night out, but also the cost of a gym membership, the cost of sporting events, and more.
Why Philly Should be Higher!
The spirit of this city is unbelievable. Let’s start with the sports scene. We’ve got the four major sports, Phillies, Eagles, 76ers, and Flyers. Plus a bevy of additional amazing teams including the Philadelphia Union. Not to mention, we have a TON of colleges and universities in the area that not only have their own sports teams but have their amazing atmosphere as well.
Plus, don’t forget the history. This is where our country began, so much to explore. We have one of the largest malls in the country, the country’s first zoo and so much more. Amazing food and dining, great arts and theater, I mean, maybe I’m biased but come on!
