As part of our local culture of laissez-faire, I believe Acadiana people know how to have fun. Especially, this time of the year, nearly every weekend there is a festival somewhere in our area. With "fun" abounding, I feel Acadiana has no shortage of amusement.

Polling experts at Wallet Hub have released what they call a list of "The Most Fun Cities In America" and some Louisiana cities have made the list.

I suspect Lafayette may not have been within the parameters of the polled places, but I cant argue with some of their choices.

Among Louisiana's representations of FUN on this year's list are :

  • No. 4 -- New Orleans
  • No. 25 -- Baton Rouge
  • No. 76 -- Shreveport

The Big Easy scored just shy of the Top 3 on the list which included:

  • No. 3 -- Miami
  • No. 2 -- Orlando
  • And the Winner is... Las Vegas

What may come as a surprise, is how some of our county's metropolitan areas fared on the list. A lot of Americans and international tourists swarm to our country's metro areas, but according to this list, smaller towns may be considered more "fun".

  •  No. 75 -- Houston
  • No. 110 -- Los Angeles
  • No. 121 -- New York City

Below is a U.S. map with all of the cities that made it on WalletHub's list.
