Look out, world. The Huffington Post and Yelp have teamed up on an incredible new project that tells you what the people of your state buy the most. And while you might find this shocking (doubtful), it turns out that Florida's most purchased item is swimwear. Our people apparently buy that stuff up at at rate that's 602 percent higher than the national average. According to Yelp, we also buy a lot of flowers and attend a lot of flea markets. Here's a list of the ten most popular types of stores in the Sunshine State: 

  1. Swimwear — 602 percent higher than national average.
  2. Flowers — 319 percent higher than national average.
  3. Flea Markets — 299 percent higher than national average.
  4. Souvenir Shops — 272 percent higher than national average.
  5. Surf Shop — 230 percent higher than national average.
  6. Guns & Ammo — 185 percent higher than national average.
  7. Drugstores — 179 percent higher than national average.
  8. Department Stores — 171 percent higher than national average.
  9. Tobacco Shops — 167 percent higher than national average.
  10. Vape Shops — 159 percent higher than national average.
