Texas ranks No. 10 in fun.

That's according to WalletHub, where Texas ranks high in its list of "most fun states to visit in America." California, Florida and New York ranked Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively.

Sorry, West Virginia: It's last place.

Texas ranked No. 7 last year, so we've got some partying to do if we want to stay in the top 10. 

But isn't fun subjective? WalletHub makes a pretty convincing case that numbers can define fun. It determined 26 metrics — and examples include "most golf clubs and country clubs per capita"; "most fitness centers per capita"; and "best access to national parks." Those metrics fell into two merry categories: entertainment & recreation and nightlife.

Texas tied for first in an area we know well: "most restaurants per capita." California, New York, and Florida — each high-ranking in other categories, too — tied with Texas for first place.

Texas also tied for first place in "most movie theaters per capita." In North Texas alone, we're home to the headquarters for Cinemark, Studio Movie Grill and Cinépolis USA. Alamo Drafthouse is HQ'd in Austin.

Here's the truth: Being ranked the tenth most-fun state in America is great, but we can all agree that Texas is No. 1 in fun in our hearts.
