And the quietest place in America is…

And the quietest place in America is…

All day long, we're surrounded by the noises of cars, ringing phones, people talking and yelling, kids screaming, dogs barking and just life in general. It would be nice to get away for a while.

If you're looking for peace and quiet and you live in a city, you may be out of luck. The constant stream of noise and sound can average as much as 60 decibels, which is about as loud as a busy restaurant. I know that doesn't seem like much, but that's just the average.

If you're looking for the quietest place in America, then you need to head to the country. But not all rural areas are created equal. There's one place in America that's quieter than anywhere else. In fact, most cities come in 16 times louder than this place.
