Cities That Need a Vacation

The August 2007 issue of Men’s Health (don’t ask me why I read it being a woman of poor heath) gathered a list of the “most workaholic” U.S. cities. They measured how residents punch the clock and logged their overtime; monitored their commute times, blood pressure and self-reported stress.

Yep, you are all wrong … New York ranked 37 on the list.

Here is the Top 10 list of cities that are all work, no play:

  1. Manchester, NH
  2. San Francisco, CA
  3. Denver, CO
  4. Orlando, FL
  5. Durham, NC
  6. Charlotte, NC
  7. Aurora, CO
  8. Boise, ID
  9. Seattle, WA
  10. Anaheim, CA

Least workaholic? Milwaukee, WI; El Paso, TX; and Rochester, NY. Go figure!

Apparently, survey shows that people could leave work 44 days earlier if they just cut back on Web surfing. Not suggesting, you should log off from Gadling, of course.
