L.A. Named 'Best City For Bros'

In the all-important demo of bros who just love to chillax and have a cold one, Los Angeles is number one.

At least, according to a new list by Estately, which ranked L.A's Bro Quotient far above that of Orlando, Boston and Las Vegas. Dude, we're even more bro-tastic than New Jersey!

The Los Angeles area is one of the leading producers of bros in America. From San Bernardino to Orange County to Malibu, the area's varied landscape is home to thousands of bros. Excessive wealth, acceptance of self-absorbed Hollywood types, and ample sunny days acts as bro incubator. Wander the campuses of USC, UCLA, Pepperdine, Chapman University, and dozens of others and you'll see bros tossing the disk around between classes or just cruising home on a longboard to play some flip cup. It's way chill, bro.

The best example of locally-sourced bros are the legendary Laker Bros, two super-stoked dudes named Ryan and Brian who were seriously excited to see a Kobe Bryant firsthand. The Los Angeles area is truly the Bro Capital of America.

Bro, we're, like, so impressed!
