(Newser) – You know the safest, least stressful, healthiest, greenest, and happiest places to live, but what about the most fun? To figure that out, WalletHub looked at 26 factors related to entertainment, nightlife, and recreation—things like restaurants, amusement parks, golf courses, theaters, arcades, music festivals, casinos, and marinas per capita; miles of shoreline, beach quality, access to national parks, and even the time of last call at local bars. Below are the top and bottom 10 states, along with their score on a 100-point scale. The most fun states:

  1. California, 61.6
  2. Florida, 58.2
  3. New York, 57.9
  4. Washington, 51.1
  5. Colorado, 49.7
  6. Nevada, 49.3
  7. Minnesota, 49
  8. Pennsylvania, 47.9
