I have been engaging in recreational Zillow talk over pillow talk for a few years. I mean, who does not love to check out homes around the corner or across the county? It turns out I am not alone.

A survey found during the pandemic, A LOT of people have perfect Zillow over sex. Yep, scrolling for the ideal home ...apparently...is a great way to escape the pandemic. I mean, people admitted to missing work deadlines due to spending time in Zillow-land. Over half admit to spending one to four hours a day on Zillow.  Refinery29 posted that 49% of those asked would choose to browse Zillow than have sex, and 41% of people said they are having less sex overall.  

I did not expect that. 

In fact, I expect to see a baby boom coming from those first few months of the pandemic when most of us were home for an extended period of time. That did not happen, and the number of births is down.  

So I have a personal question...do you Zillow?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

LOOK: Stunning vintage photos capture the beauty of America's national parks

Today these parks are located throughout the country in 25 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The land encompassing them was either purchased or donated, though much of it had been inhabited by native people for thousands of years before the founding of the United States. These areas are protected and revered as educational resources about the natural world, and as spaces for exploration.
