People are always complaining about how boring Minnesota is, but according to this study, it's one of the most fun places to be... 

How did the study work?

"With pure enjoyment in mind, WalletHub’s number crunchers compared the 50 states across 22 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," according to the WalletHub story. 

Here's where Minnesota ranked:

  • 13th – Movie Theaters per Capita
  • 9th – Golf Courses & Country Clubs per Capita
  • 10th – Performing-Arts Theaters per Capita
  • 15th – Fitness Centers per Capita
  • 8th – Casinos per Capita
  • 4th – Variety of Arts, Entertainment & Recreation Establishments
  • 1st – Personal Spending on Recreation Services per Capita

Minnesota is the 13th most fun state in America. Here are the top 5:

  1. Nevada
  2. South Dakota
  3. Colorado
  4. North Dakota
  5. New York

Really? Both Dakotas made the top 5? What's everybody think of that?
