Layton, UT

Not too bad. Not sure why Nevada is such a happy place... other than all the partying that goes on there... and Maine is a lovely state, and who can expect to compete with Hawaii... Everybody there is nice, I think it's in their genes. They definitely have the nicest strangers I've ever met... Utah did pretty darn good snagging #4.

And of course it is with great satisfaction I note that we beat out big tourism states that pride themselves a bit too much in how wonderful their lifestyle is... like California, Oregon, Washington, Florida and Colorado. Buwahahaha!

Somewhere in Time, UT

I'm highly skeptical about the validity of this study. However, I do believe Utah is one of the happiest places in the world and Provo/Orem is one of the happiest places in Utah.

In Utah and Idaho there are a lot of people who "live after the manner of happiness."
