We may not like the taxes or all the regulations, but the personal finance website WalletHub says New York is the country's third-most fun state in America.  In a recent report WalletHub says New York is:

  • Number 1 in Restaurants per capita
  • Number 1 in Movie Theatres per capita
  • Number 1 in Performing Arts Theatres per capita
  • Number 1 in Fitness Centers per capita
  • Number 6 in Amusement Parks per capita
  • Number 7 in Golf Courses and Country Clubs per capita

Another surprising one - New York was tied for Number 1 in most marinas per capita.

WalletHub compared the 50 states in two main categories; Entertainment/Recreation and Nightlife.

New York was Number 3 in Entertainment/Recreation and Number 4 in Nightlife.

California at Number-1 and Florida at Number-2 were the only states to receive higher grades.  The worst state for having fun?  West Virginia.

Here is the complete report:
