In a new survey by Wallethub, Orlando has been named one of the best cities in America for an active lifestyle.

Orlando named second best city in the country for recreation

Orlando has only been beaten by Las Vegas as the 2023 Best City For Recreation in a new survey by Wallethub, although we gotta ask, who knew Las Vegas had so much recreation to enjoy other than gambling? Sorry Vegas!

Here in Orlando we have so many beautiful parks, nature trails, and a ton of activities for everyone to enjoy.

The survey has listed Orlando in second place, with only 5 other Florida cities in the top 100, with Tampa 3rd, St Petes 19th, Jacksonville 33rd, Miami 54th, and Hialeah in 93rd place.

WalletHub compared the 100 largest U.S. cities, comparing the accessibility of entertainment and recreational facilities, the cost of recreation and the quality of parks and the weather.
