Chicago is the most fun city in the world – while London comes in tenth, according to a new study
Researchers polling 20,000 residents across 18 cities worldwide found Chicago scored highest overall as having the best restaurants, bars and neighbourhoods.
Situated on Lake Michigan in Illinois, the city seems to be having it all: it is also praised for its affordability, and residents here are more likely to have friendly chats with strangers, go on more dates and achieve a great work-life balance than anywhere else in the world.
With other cities being more affordable and easier to find friends, London just makes it into the top 10 of the world’s most fun places. The capital is also held back as residents of the UK’s largest city admit they work longer hours than they’d like, allowing for less ‘fun-time’ in their personal life.
