This is a new one. 

I have seen hundreds of rankings on the safest, cleanest, wealthiest and ugliest cities in Alabama and America.

I have never seen a ranking based on "fun". Define fun.

According to Webster, it's something "amusing or enjoyable".

Fun means different things to different people. WalletHub looked at 65 different metrics for the list of the most fun cities in America.

As well as the LEAST fun cities.

Only ONE city in Alabama made the top 100 "fun" cities in the USA.

However, one other city in Alabama made the top 5 least expensive cities to see a movie.

Ranking 3rd on the list of top 5 cheapest cities to go to the movies is...

Montgomery, Alabama.

Categories included cities with the most/least festivals, restaurants, playgrounds and parks, fitness centers, and bars.

I'm a little surprised that Tuscaloosa was missing from the bars and nightlife lists.

I've lived in several Alabama cities and T-Town has a fairly healthy nightlife even when the students are "gone" for the summer.

Here's a look at the Top 5 MOST FUN CITIES IN THE USA.

5. New Orleans, Louisiana

4. Miami, Florida

I have only visited once, to get on a cruise ship, so I have no idea.

3. Atlanta, Georgia

I guess Atlanta is fun, but it's scary after dark.

2. Orlando, Florida

Yes! Universal Studios is a blast and more fun than Disney.

1. Las Vegas, Nevada

LOVED IT! I was surprised at how much fun it was to visit Vegas. Incredible food.

The ONLY Alabama city to rank in the top 100 was Birmingham, Alabama at No. 57. Birmingham rated best in the "Nightlife & Parties" category placing 40th in the USA.


5. Fontana, California

4. Yonkers, New York

3. South Burlington, Vermont

2. Bridgeport, Connecticut

1. Rancho Cucamonga, California.

With a name like Rancho Cucamonga it's probably not much fun.
