We could all use a little extra fun in 2022, right? If you’re planning your next family getaway with an eye on affordability and enjoyment, some cities rise to the top. WalletHub compared more than 180 cities in the U.S. to determine the Most Fun Cities in America and they’re spread across the country!

To pick the best of the best, WalletHub looked at a number of key metrics, including park playgrounds, restaurants, festivals and even the open hours of breweries. The top spot may not immediately seem like a family destination, but it pulled high marks for entertainment and recreation. The full top 20:

  1. Las Vegas, NV
  2. Orlando, FL
  3. Atlanta, GA
  4. Miami, FL
  5. New Orleans, LA
  6. San Francisco, CA
  7. Austin, TX

  9. Honolulu, HI
  10. New York, NY
  11. Tampa, FL

  15. Fort Lauderdale, FL
  16. San Diego, CA
  17. Cincinnati, OH
  18. Washington, DC
  19. Houston, TX
  20. St. Louis, MO

If foodie finds are a top vacationing priority, Orlando and Chicago have the most restaurants per capita. If your family prefers to explore outdoors, San Francisco and Boston have the highest share of the population with walkable park access. And if you’re all about fun festivals, Honolulu and San Francisco rise to the top.
