A perfect town is a town in the Animal Crossing series that follows a set of guidelines. It will be considered by neighbors to be the "best town" to live in. The rating of the town will be dependent on three factors: Cleanliness, Abundant Nature, and Abundant Living.


A town that is clean must have:

  • Less than 10 Weeds
  • Less than 10 items on the ground
    • This does not include buried items, sea shells, fruit or mushrooms
  • No Trash
  • No Raffelsia

Abundant nature

A town with abundant nature must be overflowing with flora:

  • Lots of trees
  • Lots of flowers
  • Certain Public Works Projects affect this:
    • Good points: Flower Clock, Flower Bed, Flower Arch, Wisteria, Straw Fence, Topiaries, Solar Panels, Wind Power Generator, Windmill
  • Bad point: Garbage Can, Jumbo Monitor, Oil Excavator, Tire Play Equipment, Picnic Sheet, Traffic Light, Illumination items, and the Tower
