Orlando found to be America’s 2nd most fun city in new study

The city of Orlando is known for its theme parks and resorts, conventions, technology companies, and our growing local food and art scene. People come here for work or fun, but return because of the great hospitality they experience at our world class attractions and resorts. Each encounter is a chance for the region to attract even more guests to our fantastic family friendly offerings. With over 74 million visitors to Central Florida last year, there are a lot of opportunities for get the word out too.

A new study from WalletHub found that Orlando is the 2nd ‘most fun’ city in America. The study compared more than 180 U.S. cities across 65 key metrics, ranging from Dance Clubs per capita to movie costs to the average open hours of breweries. For Orlando, it all added up to a spot just short of the top.

Fun in Orlando (1=Most Fun, 91=Avg.):

12th – Festivals per Capita
1st – Dance Clubs per Capita (tie)
5th – Restaurants per Capita
72nd – Playgrounds per Capita
8th – Bar Accessibility
75th – Parkland Acres per Capita
12th – Fitness Centers per Capita
11th – Number of Attractions
83rd – Movie Cost

As you might be able to guess, Las Vegas was ranked number one. Here’s a video highlighting the top and bottom cities:

Americans spend an average of $3,000 a year on entertainment. So there’s a lot of competition to attract visitors to tourist destinations like Orlando. Other than visiting Walt Disney World, what do you tell your friends is the most fun about Central Florida?
