Time to take a victory lap, Bay State! You were just named the “Most Fun” State in New England. But maybe you’ll want to cut that victory lap short because it’s a bit of a back-handed compliment.

WalletHub loves themselves some state-by-state rankings and they recently dove into the “Most Fun States In the Country.” Massachusetts was tops for New England… but… New England as a whole didn’t score very highly on their fun scale.

I think we’re fun. We love going to the beach, picking apples, bragging about our sports teams, going on Dunks Runs, complaining about our sports teams – life is a hoot!

Oh well, my fellow party-poopers, here’s the state-by-state breakdown of “The Most Fun States In the Country.” As the list progresses the states get less-and-less fun!! How fun!
