Methodology
In order to determine the happiest cities in America, WalletHub compared 182 of the largest cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across three key dimensions: 1) Emotional & Physical Well-Being, 2) Income & Employment and 3) Community & Environment.

We evaluated these categories using 31 relevant metrics, which are listed below with their corresponding weights. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing maximum happiness. Data for metrics marked with an asterisk (*) were available only at the state level.

We then determined each city’s weighted average across all metrics to calculate its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order our sample.

Our analysis draws upon the findings of the following research, each of which has indicated a correlation between our data and happiness:
  • Happy People Live Longer: Subjective Well-Being Contributes to Health and Longevity (Chan and Diener, 2010)
  • Happiness from Ordinary and Extraordinary Experiences (Bhattacharjee and Mogilner, 2014)
  • Sports Participation and Happiness: Evidence from U.S. Micro Data (Huang and Humphreys, 2010)
  • Unhappy Cities (Glaeser, et al., 2014)
 
Happiness is mostly a personal thing. If you're a miserable sack of shit you're probably gonna be a miserable sack of shit anywhere you go. The biggest external factors IMO are your relationships and your financial security. Tough to be happy if your relationships are a disaster or you're struggling to keep your head above water.
 
Lot of CA in that list.

What of those cities legalized the weeds?

Yeah and theyre within 100miles of eachother.

Sanjose and freemont are the tech hubs and santa rosa is where they live when they make enough money to get the house in the wine country.

Bunch of overpaid smug ****s.
 
i can vouch that fremont and san jose suck :laughing:

sitting in fremont right now, hell im in fremont more than im home :homer:
 
I have no neighbors and hunt off my back porch. Can't even see the house from the road.

I'm pretty freaking happy. :flipoff2:

Yeah, I bet if you use the same metrics they had to compare rural areas to cities, the rural areas will always win. Open space sends the Emotional & Physical Well Being category through the roof.

Just remember there are quite a few people that absolutely hate the idea of living out in the boonies. They WANT to live in a big city with all that it has.

Heh, I recently got into contact with my old childhood neighbors. They all live in the city. Going to invite them over this summer to camp over. See how it goes spending that night outside in the middle of deep woods. :laughing:

Yep, can confirm. My inlaws cannot believe my wife lives where we do. No one around? What if something were to happen? Lady, the reason that nothing is going to happen is because there is no one around. :flipoff2:
 
I don't care about cidiots. Them and their historical left leaning voting can fuck right the fuck off

I grew up in a rural area and about 75% of the guys I was friends with in high school moved to the city. They love the city life and everything about it. "I like living so close to everything and there is always something to do!"

Kicker is, its Baltimore City. WTF is there to do, NOT get shot at?

My one buddy bought an old house in the "historical" part of the city and his property taxes are over $10k a year. It blows my mind that he pays a hefty mortgage on top of those taxes to live in Baltimore City.
 
Fremont because it's on the south side of the Sonol grade but still a ways from downtown silicon valley.

You mean look for animals in frustration, then go to the store to buy meat while your freezer is empty because "hunting"? :flipoff2:
