If you’re looking for the U.S. city with the most vacation homes, by number, that’s New York City. It’s popular, for sure — and it also has the most homes, period.

However, if you’re looking for the city where you’re most likely to come across a vacation home — where the share of all homes that are vacation homes is largest — that’s a different glittery strip: Miami Beach, where a quarter of all homes are seasonal, recreational or occasional use, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

By the latter measure, nine of the 10 cities with the most vacation homes are in Florida. If you took that same measure among a longer list of metro areas, you’d find greater geographic diversity, but among a shorter list of the 184 cities with the most homes, Florida is the clear winner.

In these spots, at least one in 10 homes is a vacation home:
