Life is pretty good here in the state of New York; turns out it is better than most states!

Think of everything we have at our disposal here in the Capital Region. All the Country shows we get here. SPAC and Saratoga. The casinos. Wee are on nature's doorstep for the Adirondacks and the Catskills. Not to mention we are a day-trip away from the greatest city on earth, Taking it all into consideration, it's no surprise New York landed at #2 on Wallethub's rankings of the most fun states! (California is #1 on the list.)

So how did Wallethub put this all together? Wallethub says scored each state based on "'..26 key indicators of a jolly good time that won’t break the bank. They range from movie costs to accessibility of national parks to casinos per capita." In New York, we check so many of  these off the list and then some. New York York performs well across the board, especially in 'Most Performing Arts Theaters Per-Capita' where we tied California for #1. Just here in the Capital Region we are loaded in this category.
