How would Columbus, Ohio, outrank New York City in a list of the top cities for culture and recreation in the US? When the words "per capita" are involved. New York may have 2,693 places dedicated to those pursuits, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Central Park, but they account for one location per 3,096 people, according to the list compiled by Property Shark and picked up by Business Insider. That's good for No. 13. Columbus, on the other hand, has one location for every 1,366 people, including the Franklin Park Conservatory, and comes in at No. 6. Here are the top 10 cities:

  1. Seattle
  2. Indianapolis
  3. Miami
  4. Houston
  5. Boston
  6. Columbus, Ohio
  7. San Antonio
  8. Philadelphia
  9. Charlotte, NC
  10. Washington, DC
