RISMedia's REAL ESTATE November 2018 97 {Blog Spot} While the No. 1 city may not sur- prise you (hello, Vegas!), some of the other list-toppers may. For in - stance, New York doesn't come in until the third slot, and Orlando beat out Miami, likely due to its several theme parks. New Orleans, on the other hand, is mid-list in the ninth slot, whereas Los Angeles doesn't enter until spot 13. To snag their findings, WalletHub compared more than 180 U.S. cit - ies across 65 key metrics, looking at movie theaters, breweries, fit - ness clubs, and more. In doing so, the study found that New York has the most restaurants (per square foot of population), and the most playgrounds (per square foot of population). New York also has the most bars (per square foot of population), 71.5 times more than in West Valley City, Utah—the city with the fewest. Bars aside, San Francisco has the most dance clubs (per square foot of population), 86.2 times more than in Plano, Texas—the city with the fewest. Below is a list of the top 20 most fun cities in the country: 1. Las Vegas, Nev. 2. Orlando, Fla. 3. New York, N.Y. 4. Atlanta, Ga. 5. Miami, Fla. 6. Chicago, Ill. 7. Portland, Ore. 8.
