Pacific Business News reported that Honolulu appeared 16th on Wallethub's 2016 Most Fun Cities in America list!  As a resident, I would have to agree!  There is never a shortage of activities for me to do with my wife and friends.  Some of my favorite things include visiting the Kakaako Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, standup paddle boarding at Ala Moana Beach Park, visiting the legendary North Shore of Oahu, sailing the island's shores, and trying out the myriad of local restaurants across the island.  What fun things do you like to do on Oahu?

If it ever seemed to you that Honolulu is more festive than other major U.S. cities, it turns out that you were right, according to a WalletHub report.

The personal finance website ranked Honolulu 16th among 2016’s Most Fun Cities in America. Las Vegas was ranked No. 1, Orlando, Florida, was second and Miami was third.

To help Americans find the cities with the greatest number and variety of cheap, fun activities, WalletHub’s analysts compared the 150 largest cities across 51 key metrics, ranging from “number of fitness clubs per capita” to “movie costs” to “average open hours of breweries.”

The number crunchers found that Hawaii’s capital has the most festivals per 100,000 residents, 41.72, which is 131 times more than in Corpus Christi, Texas, the city with the lowest, 0.32.
