New York is known as “Fun City,” but does it really live up to its nickname?

According to a new report from personal-finance website WalletHub on the Most Fun Cities in America, Las Vegas is the No. 1 place for a really good time that also won’t break your wallet. The site compared the 150 largest U.S. cities across 51 key metrics, ranging from “number of fitness clubs per capita” to “movie costs” to “average open hours of breweries.”

“Sin City” has the most clubs per 100,000 residents, 23.6, which is more than any other metropolis in the study. Rounding out the top 10 in order were Orlando at No. 2, followed by Miami, New Orleans, Salt Lake City, Cincinnati, Fort Lauderdale, St. Louis, Atlanta and Scottsdale, Arizona. Coming in last: Anchorage, Alaska.

And as for New York City, the Big Apple came in at a not-too-juicy 121st place.
