Boca Raton Named Top City Where Lazy People Can Thrive, According To

Boca Raton was just named the best city in the country for lazy people, and frankly, we're offended. Shopping and soaking up all that sunshine takes hard work, too.

Seriously though, released a list of the Top 10 Cities Where Lazy Folks Can Thrive this week, and Boca Raton landed on the top of the heap.

For the ranking, the real estate website enlisted its data analysts to determine the U.S. cities where the work-life balance scale tips toward "life." 

Analysts considered the following (silly) factors to make their determination: the number of restaurants that offer delivery; the number of day spas and massage therapy centers; the percentage of homes on that have a hot tub, sauna or steam room; average hours of sleep; average work hours per week; average cost of a cleaning service; and the number of available on-demand service apps, such as Instacart and Postmates.

Earning the No. 1 spot, Boca was recognized for its average temperature of 77 degrees Fahrenheit—keeping us out of the office and at the beach instead—and the many shopping options we have to choose from: Boca Town Center, Mizner Park and Royal Palm Place.

Apparently, Florida and California are both havens for lazy people. Each state had three cities named to the top 10 list.

Here is the complete ranking, below:

1. Boca Raton, Florida


2. Orlando, Florida


3. Boulder, Colorado


4. Las Vegas, Nevada


5. Miami, Florida


6. Provo, Utah


7. Berkeley, California


8. Ann Arbor, Michigan


9. Pasadena, California


10. San Francisco, California
