The Happiest City In North Carolina

March 14, 2018

If there’s one place in North Carolina you can count on to bring you peace and happiness, look no further than Asheville. Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, it’s been named as the happiest city in The Tar Heel State.

The annual Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index polls hundreds of thousands of people across hundreds of cities, measuring their individual sense of purpose, satisfaction with relationships, health and financial security. Asheville ranked in the top 25 happiest cities in America (#19), and was the happiest city here in North Carolina.

The poll also calculates the most miserable cities in America, and unfortunately, my hometown of Hickory was named one of the top five most miserable. What are on earth is happening up there?!?
