Based on more than 60 factors, including things like depression rates and average amount of sunshine, LawnStarter compared the most populous 190 cities in the United States, seeking to determine which spots were the most relaxed. One city in Colorado was included among the top 10 most relaxed places across the country.
Fort Collins ranked 8th among America's most relaxed cities, driven by high scores in 'physical health' and 'work environment' criteria. Fort Collins residents were also found to have the best sleeping habits nationally with the highest rates of adequate sleep, along with the second highest rate for leisure physical activity.
Other Colorado cities were also featured on the list, though they did not perform as well.
Colorado Springs ranked 35th, Denver ranked 38th, Thornton ranked 62nd, and Aurora ranked 74th. The most relaxed place on the list was ranked as Sunnyvale, California and the least relaxed place was ranked as Kansas City, Kansas. California had the largest number of most relaxed cities, accounting for 12 cities in the top 25.
