I am one of those people who hate getting up in morning. I prefer to start the "day" in the afternoon and up to late in the AM. One of the problem is almost everything starts way too early in the morning in all cities I know.

What I am looking for US City that start day late and end late. For example, all Schools/Collges/Universities start 12 pm and end at 7 pm. Malls open at 1 pm and closes at 1 am. City services (trash pickup, etc) starts at 12 pm and closes at 8 pm. Lunch time of course should be 3 or 4pm and dinner time at 10 pm.

Would nice if I could figure some place like this, instead of having to adjust myself to everyone else schedule!

Stonerville.

Also refered to by its nickname with the area code, so "420-town."

Great pizza joints, to boot.

Nothing that extreme. Business and school start times are pretty standard.However,as for the general culture I noticed that people tend to stay up later and wake up later in Florida than in a lot of the North.

Do you actually know of any? I am come from South Asia, where cultural is to stay up way late. However, school and work still starts at 7 am or 8 am! I haven't yet to hear of any place where school/work/government all starts late.

You'd be hard pressed to find such a place. Go to bed earlier?

I do get to bed early. However, I have figured out I get best REM, deep sleep, during 7 am to 9 am in morning. Even if I get to bed before early, I will in a very since sleeping state when stupid alarm wakes me up in the morning!!!

I post back if I find such a place... I was hoping some else already did.
