These Are The Happiest Cities In America In 2019

March 13, 2019

When it comes to happiness, money isn’t necessarily everything. Once you’re making $75,000 a year, more money isn’t going to make you all that much happier. That’s why WalletHub has released its list of the happiest cities in America based on 31 factors, including mental well-being, how much sleep people get and the cities’ divorce rate. The data helped them rank 182 cities from best to worst.

Plano, Texas is the happiest city in America in 2019, followed by Irvine, CA and Madison, WI.

The least happiest cities are Detroit, MI, followed by Toledo, OH and Charleston, WV.

Where do the Carolinas’ cities rank in all of this? Charleston, SC is the highest-ranked Carolina city at #20, with Raleigh, NC coming in at #23. Charlotte ranks #52 on the list.
