Atlanta Named #5 Best City for Recreation

Wallethub's list considers recreational facilities, park lands, and weather.

Atlantans have more fun than most other Americans, according to the 2017 Wallethub list of the best and worst cities for recreation. Hotlanta is ranked #5, behind Orlando, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Tampa. The list considers factors such as percent of parkland in the city and hiking trails, beaches, and fishing spots per capita, as well as less outdoorsy qualities such as availability of coffee shops and music venues.
