I imagine somewhere in Wyoming would probably be the most laid back

Agreed!

The western United States takes the cake. For a big city, Albuquerque, NM is extremely laid back. I would say most of the mountain west in general is less stressful outside the big cities. San Diego is up there too due to the beach culture.

Anywhere not up North that's at least 100 miles from the nearest major urban area.

Anywhere that is outside of a Urban area regardless of the latitude it lays at for the most part. There are laid back areas in ALL regions of the Country.

I think the op was referring to regional culture/attitudes. Upstate New York might be laid back compared to other parts of the Northeast but it's not as laid back as most places in the Rural South or Plains States.

There are places in the Northeast, Midwest, West, etc... that are every bit as laid back as the South. Just as there are parts of the South that are as tense and fast paced as some of the Northeast. Usually it is split urban/rural no matter what region you are in.

But in general, the South, as a region is more laid back than the North is, as a region. Exceptions to the general rule can be found anywhere if you look hard enough.

^^ Absolutely. The deep south might be very slow however. And even slower still the rural midwest and plain states. The west in general is more laid back.
