Miami is the third most fun city in America!

That’s right, northerners

While Miami may not fare well nationally in important facets of life like safety and affordability, the city clearly knows how to have a good time.

Fresh of being ranked the eighth best party city in the world a week ago, Miami just took the No. 3 spot nationally in 2016’s Most Fun Cities in America, according to a study by WalletHub.

Their methodology was rather extensive, utilizing 51 relevant metrics—things like the number of ice cream shops, beaches, and movie theaters per capita, in addition to the obvious ones like the prominence of bars and casinos.

Miami ranked second in Restaurants per Capita and tied for first in Fitness Centers per Capita. I'm not sure who considers working out to be fun.

It’s somewhat surprising to see Orlando come in at No. 2. Disney World must’ve given it quite the boost.
