Do you live in one of the most fun states in the country?
In some parts of the country, fun is not just an option — it’s a way of life. Although “fun” is sometimes a relative term, there are certain states that come to mind when you think of the best variety of restaurants, theaters, parks and other exciting attractions.

Those categories were then broken down into 26 relevant metrics related to “fun,” including beach quality, music festivals and access to bars.
Last year, Nevada was dubbed the most fun state in America, scoring 56 out of a possible 100 points for its high variety of arts, entertainment and recreation establishments. But this year, two others outranked the state — tying with each other on several of the metrics.
