Based on a new study performed by the apartment scientists at Apartments.com, Orlando ranks 3rd in the country for apartment buildings that offer the holy GTL trifecta—you know, gym, pool and laundry facilities.

In other words, if washing your clothes, working on gains and laying by the pool all day is a priority, then Orlando is a perfect location for you.   

Here’s the full list of cities and the order in which they are ranked by GTL:

1. Las Vegas
2. Austin
3. Orlando
4. Phoenix
5. Raleigh
6. Denver
7. Houston
8. Metro Washington, DC
9. Tampa
10. Seattle

Since just about every apartment complex has some sort of laundry facility and most have some sort of gym option, you could almost just say "Orlando ranks third in a list of cities that are hot and therefore have pools." But, this isn't our "study."

According to the press release, "The ranking is based on the number of available units per capita in cities with more than 100 apartment buildings that offer all three amenities. Compared to its population, Orlando has 326 apartment buildings comprising nearly 96,000 units with in-building access to a gym, pool and laundry facilities.
