The Best And Worst U.S. Cities For Recreation, 2019

San Diego

Unsurprisingly, San Diego is the best city in America for recreation in a recent study by the personal finance outlet WalletHub. Out of 100 cities, Las Vega ranks at number 2 on the 2019’s Best & Worst Cities for recreation, followed by Orlando, FL; Honolulu, HI; and Tampa, FL.

Meanwhile, Jersey City, NJ; Irving, TX; Oakland, CA; Fort Wayne, IN; and Chula Vista, CA ranked as the five worst U.S. cities for recreation. It’s a little bit of a head-scratcher.

To determine the best (and the worst) cities in America for recreation 2019 ranking, analysts compared the 100 most populated U.S. cities across four key dimensions: entertainment/recreational facilities, costs, quality of parks and weather. Data for the study came from a variety of reputable sources, such as the U.S. Census Bureau and Council for Community and Economic Research, The Trust for Public Land, Public Courses, Yelp.com, TripAdvisor, Numbeo.com, Under Armour, IMLeagues, 2Book and internal research.
