Jawbone, a technology company, used data compiled from its fitness- and sleep-tracker wearers to find out what time each U.S. county went to bed every night and just how much sleep they were getting. And Orlando? Let's just say you should go to bed earlier, young man ... and young woman.
According to the study, those living in Orange County, Florida hit the sack on average at about 11:39 p.m., getting about 6.97 hours of sleep per night. Miami stays up a little later than us, taking the No. 1 sleepless spot in Florida with a bedtime of 11:54 p.m. and 6.78 hours of dreamland every night. Brooklyn has the latest average bedtime in the country, with a lights out time of 12:07 a.m. "No Sleep til Brooklyn," indeed.
Here are some more sleepy-time facts from the study:
