Trident, the makers of the popular gum, have released the results of their first ever “fun index.” The Trident Fun Index is a new national study conducted to measure the state of fun in America taking into account the economy and the limited personal time a number of Americans are experiencing.

According to the gum makers, one in five people (19 percent) said they couldn’t remember the last time they had fun. Furthermore, fewer than eighteen percent (18 percent) of people reported taking the opportunity to do something just for fun each day.

In an effort to reverse those dismal numbers, Trident launched a campaign to demonstrate how even just a sliver of their gum can bring fun into your everyday life. With their fun index in tow and obviously fresh breath, Trident looked to Facebook to survey which cities are having the “best time.”

The results are based on responses to questions designed to understand consumer attitudes and behaviors relating to fun.

    Sorry but there is absolutely NOTHING fun about DC or the DC metro area. How can a place be fun when it’s anti-social & uppity ? #1 & #2 are a toss up between NYC & LA..after that at #3 I say SF, #4 Dallas, #5 Miami, #6 Vegas, #7 Houston, #8 Chicago, #9 San Diego, #10 Philly


      I totally agree that DC and the DC area as hole is just down right horrible. the fun citlies are Key West, Fla, CanCun, Mexcio, and of course Dewey Beach, Delaware! Jaybird!! Dewey Beach, Delaware

      Yeah….never found DC very fun. I live about an hour away… The people are not super friendly and even a bit rude sometimes. I would say it’s mostly good for tourism, museums, or business.

      I love New Orleans, there so much going on. You don’t have to drink to have fun, you can eat. The food so good at any of the fabulous restaurants, and reasonably priced. Great party town.
