Portland: Fun City!

Portfolio.com has ranked Portland, Maine as the 8th Best City to Have Fun (Out of 100!) Specifically they ranked 100 U.S. metros on the basis of which are the best cities for running a business based on fun. Portfolio looked at data for concentrations of businesses in "seven broad categories of fun: shopping, food and drink, culture, popular entertainment, gambling, and high-impact and low-impact sports." Along with Portland's remarkable density of retail stores and marinas, it is "among the five concentration leaders in seven other fields: fitness centers, restaurants, golf courses, amusement parks, museums, movie theaters, and performing arts companies." Surprisingly, we only came in 27th in terms of their food and drink fun-o-meter ranking. They must have never had the fries at Duckfat.
