Are we having fun yet? If you live in Atlanta, probably. If you live outside the metro area, it’s a toss-up.
The rest of Georgia must not be as fun-loving, because it didn’t fare quite that well on WalletHub’s ranking of most fun states.
To determine the most fun states, WalletHub compared all 50 of them across two categories: entertainment and recreation, and nightlife.
Those categories were evaluated using 26 key metrics, with a highest possible score of 100. You can read the complete methodology here.
California finished on top, followed by Florida, New York, Washington and Colorado, in that order.
Georgia landed at No. 24, with an overall score of 38.56. The state was No. 22 for entertainment and recreation, and No. 26 for nightlife. Atlanta, on the other hand, ranked No. 13 for entertainment and recreation, and No. 4 for nightlife. The city was tied for the most dance clubs per capita.
