DENVER – The Mile High City sure knows how to have fun.

Denver landed in the 11th spot on finance website WalletHub’s list of the “most fun” cities in the country.

WalletHub based its rankings on a whole slew of entertainment and recreation-related factors, such as the number of restaurants, bars, attractions, skiing facilities, hiking trails, sports facilities, theaters and amusement parks per capita, as well as weather and cost of pleasure activities, among many others.

It’s not much of a surprise that Las Vegas landed in first place and Orlando – home to Walt Disney World and Universal resorts – came in second.

Here are the top 15 “most fun” cities, according to WalletHub:

1.    Las Vegas, NV
2.    Orlando, FL
3.    New York, NY
4.    Miami, FL
5.    Portland, OR
6.    Atlanta, GA
7.    San Francisco, CA
8.    New Orleans, LA
9.    Chicago, IL

11.    Denver, CO
12.    Los Angeles, CA
13.    Cincinnati, OH
14.    St. Louis, MO
