Second City ranks 2nd for fun

April 26, 2010 (CHICAGO) The website ranks the nation's top cities for 'fun' and Chicago came in at number two. The website looked at 100 cities and collected statistics on 14 subjects, then grouped the information into seven categories: shopping, food and drink, culture, popular entertainment, gambling, and high-impact and low-impact sports.

Chicago made the top 10 in six of the seven categories. It scored third place in the category of food and drink and fourth place in popular entertainment.

New York City leads the list, overall, but many Chicagoans believe there's no place better-- especially in the summer.
