Portfolio.com came out with the 100 funnest cities in the United States. New York City comes in first and I can see that. But they rank Las Vegas 26th in the country. 26? Behind cities like Riverside, CA, just behind Milwaukee (I used to live in Milwaukee, there is no comparison, hell, there far more bowling alleys in Vegas than Milwaukee and a lot more entertainment) Detroit? Bridgeport,CT? Madison, WI? Well, it maybe fun if you are a binge drinker, but that's about it. Poughkeepsie? Where the hell is that?
Sorry, but whoever came up with that list is smoking something. Crack, pot, meth or whatever. In Las Vegas, you can see world class entertainment, sporting events, has family friendly activities, free entertainment, world class restaurants, great parks and it is fairly cheap to live or visit.
OK, we don't have a major league team, but you can go to any major casino and watch whatever sporting event you want on big screen tv's and have fun doing so.
So, my suggestion to the people at portfolio.com, go into rehab and come out with a clearer head, maybe you can come up with a better list.
