(Newser) – Variety is the spice of life—and also one of the metrics WalletHub used to figure out what the most fun cities in America are. The site looked at 150 of the most populated cities in the US, examining nearly 60 gauges that indicate a good time will likely be had by all. Those gauges include the various recreational activities a city has to offer—everything from bowling alleys and beaches to playgrounds, sports venues, and amusement parks—as well as nightlife options and affordability. Sin City came in first place, while if you're planning on visiting Oxnard in California ... you might want to bring a good book. Here, the top 10:

  1. Las Vegas
  2. Orlando, Fla.
  3. New York City
  4. Miami
  5. Portland, Ore.
  6. Atlanta
  7. San Francisco
  8. New Orleans
  9. Chicago
  10. San Diego
