Aside from the sizzling hot Miami scene, the beautiful beaches on each coast of Florida and the most magical place on Earth in Orlando, there are many boring spots throughout the Sunshine State. After all, this is a safe haven for the retirees. Closest to home is the city of Wellington, which ranked No. 6 out of the most boring places to live in the state.

Movoto.com, a real estate website, used the 2010 U.S. Census and a collection of the following eight criteria to help create the list:

-Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
-Live music venues per capita
-Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
-Arts and entertainment per capita (movie theaters, festivals, galleries, theaters, etc.)
-Fast food restaurants per capita (the more the more boring)
-Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the lower the more boring)
-Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the lower the more boring)
-Population density (the lower the better)

The least happening place with the No. 1 title was Poinciana. Somewhere smack dab in the middle of Florida with no beach in sight, Poinciana has a lack of nightlife, arts and an active lifestyle. Wellington, the sixth most boring, isn’t too thrilling with its abundant parks, quality schools and attractive neighborhoods. Not only does it have one of the lowest percentages of people between ages 18 and 34, but it also has a serious lack of nightlife, music venues and non-chain restaurants.

Miramar ranked No. 11, Weston took the 21st spot with the city of Tamarac following it, and Coral Springs came in at No. 28. The rest of Movoto’s top 50 most boring places to live in Florida can be found here.
