…California, of course! That probably doesn’t surprise you at all. It’s also great news for those of us who are trying to save gas this summer and plan getaways that are closer to home!

Wallethub looked at over 2 dozen different factors to determine how “fun” each state is…from movie costs to accessibility of national parks to casinos per capita. While California was an easy pick for #1 (lucky us!), most of our neighbors ranked pretty high in the “fun factor” as well. So, even if you want a change of scenery, some great destinations are not far away!

Here are the Top 15 “Fun” States, according to Wallethub:

1 California
2 Florida
3 Nevada
4 New York
5 Illinois
6 Colorado
7 Washington
8 Texas
9 Minnesota
10 Louisiana
11 Oregon
12 Arizona
13 Pennsylvania
14 Maryland
15 North Carolina
