Austin came in as the top fun city in Texas in WalletHub’s new study, the Austin American Statesman reports.
It’s probably not surprising to most Texans that we beat out other cities like Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio. However, Austinites who like to have a good time may be surprised by the fact that Austin was listed as just the 18th most fun city in the country.
Austin did okay in the Nightlife and Parties category, coming in at number 17, and slightly worse in the Entertainment and Recreation category, snagging the 24th spot, its ranking was tanked by its showing in the costs category: 50th.
Wondering where the most fun is to be had in the US? That would be Las Vegas, Orlando, and New York. The least fun cities? Brownsville and Oxnard, California.
