Colorado is Content!

A recent Gallup Study has ranked every state within the United States according to a well-being and contentment survey. While ever state has something to offer, there are only a few states that are home to truly happy people. The list includes some states that are popular vacation destinations (like Hawaii), and other states that you may not know much about.

If you’re moving to Denver, Colorado, though, you’ll be moving to number seven on the list! As it turns out, people that live in Colorado are content. Here’s why!


Why Denver Makes People Happy  


It’s the sun, the land, and the open skies that make people in this state superbly content. With a life expectancy of 80-years old, and one of the lowest obesity rates in the country, Colorado is a healthy and happy place. Why are people in Colorado so active? It all has to do with the overall lifestyle that is enjoyed by all that live there. It’s safe to say that you can get outside and do almost any activity anywhere in Colorado, but Denver is where most people go to enjoy a mixture of city life and that laid back culture that puts Colorado at the top of the contentment chain.


Did you know that Denver gets more sunshine than most other cities in the U.S.? With over 300 days of sunshine per year, you’ll never get the winter blues. In fact, you’ll probably get a nice winter tan just from walking outside or picking up a pair of skis! So, it’s simple to see why Denver gets a nice high ranking from the latest Gallup Study. If you’re wondering what other states are on the list, here’s a quick look.


Other Happy States


  • Iowa
  • Washington
  • Hawaii
  • Vermont
  • Montana
  • Minnesota
