Portland ranks #8 in Most Fun Cities in America (KOIN)

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Portland, Oregon ranks as number 8 out of 182 major US cities, in the “Most Fun Cities in America,” according to a list curated by WalletHub.

In making the list, WalletHub compared 150 of the most populated US cities, and added at least two of the most populated cities in each state. The cities are ranked based on three main criteria: entertainment and recreation, nightlife and parties, and costs. Those three categories were further broken down into 66 metrics that include categories such as “Most Festivals per Capita” and “Most Acres of Parkland per Capita.”

Ranked number 1 on the list was Las Vegas, followed by Orlando and New York. San Diego and Los Angeles follow behind Portland to round out the Top 10.
