With literally millions of people in the state of Texas, one might think it's not a state that gets much sleep. And people would be wrong...sorta. Turns out that a few cities do indeed rank amongst the most sleep-deprived cities in the United States but there's one city where you're likely to get a ton of sleep.

What Texas city is the best for sleep?

According to the Sleep Foundation, Austin ranks #10 in the top 10 U.S. cities that get the most sleep. You wouldn't think Austin would be so high, on account of how many concerts & parties occur in the city weekly, but it does.

The reason why is that most of the population has a lot of time to exercise & only 28.2% of its population is considered obese. Its low air pollution is another factor on why people get a ton of sleep. (Also, hey, maybe getting sleep after a night of partying is a factor too).
