If there's one thing the world can never have enough of, it's bakeries. Bakeries -- whipping up fresh breads and sweet treats for the masses -- bring joy and goodness to our lives. We're willing to bet it's one of the reasons people fall in love with France so easily. And it turns out that stateside, we're pretty well stocked with bakeries too.

However, not every city is created equal. Some do it better (and by better we mean have more bakeries per capita than other cities). The folks at FindTheHome used geospatial and business data to find out where the most bakeries in America exist -- a.k.a., the best cities and towns to live in -- and have come up with the top 10 bakery capitals of America.

Here they are -- starting with number 10. Check them out then see the original map for more information.

Nashville might have the music just 21 miles away, but Franklin is home to so many bakeries. One notable choice is Merridees Breadbasket for just about everything they make.
