Looking for somewhere calm and quiet? Want to get away from all the noise?
I can’t blame you, since according to this map, Jacksonville is one of the more noisy places in the country. Not surprisingly, the most quiet places are mostly out west, or in upstate New York. The map was made after a scientist measured the sound of every place last year, and added that data into a computer algorithm, which created sound levels from variables such as air or street traffic.
It shouldn’t take long to get into a quieter part, right under Jacksonville are some light blue spaces, some of the more quiet places. So if you’re looking to escape the noise, try heading into the blue. View the full map below.
