Louisiana Is 8th Most Fun State In The U.S.
We may not have the best roads, best health, or best money management skills in the country; but, boy, we sure know how to have fun! In the most recent WalletHub study, Louisiana ranks 8th in the most fun states in which to live in the United States.
The study considered factors like movie costs, access to national parks, and number of casinos per capita to develop its rankings. As you can imagine, Louisiana scored high in the casinos per capita category where we ranked 13th.
What may surprise you, however, is that the Pelican State comes in 4th in State & Local Direct General Expenditures on Parks & Recreation per Capita. Also not surprising is that we ranked 32nd in Fitness Centers per Capita. We like to have our fun, we just don't want to work it off when we're done.
