Amarillo Named As One of the Most Fun Cities in America
When you think of Amarillo, do you consider it a fun city? I think Amarillo is a fun city to live in. I know a lot of people say, "there's nothing to do in Amarillo," but that's not true. Amarillo is a fun city, and apparently one of the most fun in America.
Now don't get me wrong we aren't number one, we didn't make the top 10, but we did make it on the list.
Wallethub did a survey and found the most fun cities in America and, yes, Amarillo made the list.
Amarillo came in at 103 for one of the funnest cities in America.
Las Vegas was the most fun city in America. Austin and Houston came in at 18 and 19. Lubbock came in at 131, Amarillo beat out Lubbock for fun!
So how was this determined. Well according to Wallethub:
In order to determine the most fun cities in the U.S., WalletHub’s analysts compared the 150 most populated cities across three key dimensions: 1) Entertainment & Recreation, 2) Nightlife & Parties and 3) Costs.
We evaluated those dimensions using 58 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the greatest number and variety of fun and cost-effective activities. For metrics marked with an asterisk (*), the square root of the population was used to calculate the population size in order to avoid
overcompensating for minor differences across cities.
Finally, we determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its total score and used the resulting scores to rank-order the cities in our sample. Our sample considers only the city proper in each case and excludes the surrounding metro area.
So the next time someone tells you that Amarillo is not a fun place, now you have the proof!
