6. Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-Goleta, CA
7. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA
8. Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV
9. Ogden-Clearfield, UT
10. Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, CA

... and the 10 unhappiest cities are:

153. Pensacola-Ferry Pass-Brent, FL
154. Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, NC
155. Shreveport-Bossier City, LA
156. Evansville, IN-KY

You know the quote that is always attributed to Abe Lincoln, I'm sure: "Most people are as happy as they make up their minds to be."
I just don't think the city makes that much difference.

I think the happiness factor is directly correlated to the amount of anti-depressants used...per capita.

Such is the case of Utah, anyway.
