Interactive Map: Popular Event-Planning Website Breaks Down Users' Favorite Activities by City

How do you spend your leisure time?

Ready for something new and different this weekend? Take a look at what others in your city might be up to.

An interactive map from Eventbrite breaks down just how popular different activities are in America's 25 largest cities. Eventbrite is an online platform that lets users create, promote and sell tickets to events. While maybe not entirely representative of each city's favorite thing to do with their downtime, it does offer an interesting look at what the local population is interested in.

To get started, click on any of the four tabs at the bottom of the graphic. From there, see which cities rank highest in each of the categories. You can also click the name of your city for a more specific breakdown.

According to Eventbrite's user data, Austin, Texas, is the city for music-lovers; Nashville, despite its "Music City" nickname, ranked only ninth in the "live music and concerts" category. Most of the other top 10 cities for music are either in Texas or California, rounded out with New York City, Charlotte, Philadelphia and Chicago.

As for fitness-related activities, San Francisco took the top spot in Eventbrite's ranking. Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose were the other California cities that fell within the top 10. East Coast cities like New York City, Baltimore and Boston also ranked highly.

If you're looking for good eats and a lot of cold beer, New York City might have what you're looking for. But if you're in Texas or California, chances are the good food and alcohol isn't far from there either. Other cities making the top 10 in the websites's "food and drink events" category were Chicago, Boston and Charlotte.

The fourth and final category gauged users'  art interests. While you might have guessed Los Angeles as the most artsy given its reputation for filmmaking, New York City managed to snag that title instead. L.A. did, however, come in at No. 2. San Francisco, Houston, Austin and Dallas were also among the honorable top 10 mentions for that category.
