We are pretty used to being at the top of all the lists that come out here in Colorado, but for some reason we just aren’t very happy and it’s got us in the bottom half of this study…

WalletHub has just come out with their list of the Happiest States in America. They looked at the 50 states across 30 key metrics in areas of emotional and physical well-being, work environment and community and environment.

Hawaii is the Happiest State, while West Virginia is the least happy.

As for Colorado, we came in at number 30. The “community and environment” section is what hurt us the most as we ranked #47 in that category.

See the full study here.
