From what I've read on this board, people in Colorado as a whole seem to be pretty happy.

I've never been there but I have a general impression that Hawaiians are pretty happy people as well.

Lots of 'stress' to be found in Atlanta, GA. Those who insist upon living 40-50 miles from work are pretty 'depressed'--frequently hostile from grueling commutes.

The people living in North GA seem to be happier--unless they reflect upon the eminent encroachment of the Atlanta sprawl.

There were definitely some happy people in Toccoa, GA--and around Lake Hartwell. Quite laid back in Flowery Branch--near Lake Lanier/Buford.

I found the greatest little 'cabin'--built in the 40's--there was a marina a few minutes away. Still thinking I should pack my bags and move there.

Ha ha guys... For real though, the people who live here are quite happy for the most part, and that kind of thing could happen anywhere, sadly.

Austin tends to attract a lot of younger, outgoing people from throughout the country. Everyone here seems to be from somewhere else, and for the most part they're very happy with their adopted home.

Scranton-- At least our city has people in it.

There is one really great person in Austin--'MikeAustin'--good sense, good sense of humor and from his posts I know I would like Austin.

At times during the last round of political discussions I thought I might go 'Insane'--never heard such Vigorous Debate in my life. Managed to survive with Mike's observations. That forum was a grass roots effort--and it really turned out well. Great minds running in the same circles.

I think the people that live in the Phoenix area are generally pretty happy. Most here seem upbeat, positive, and always up for anything. I also think happiness has somewhat to do with the type of climate you live in. I believe that people who live in a place that is almost always sunny tend to be more upbeat and quite a bit happier. I've been to Seattle before and I've never felt so depressed in my life! It was cloudy, foggy, and a bit rainy during most of my stay. I need the sun.

I have visited Hawaii and from my prespective it was a very laid back and happy lifestyle, mostly outside of Honolulu. People seemed to work to live and not vicer versa.

Most of the happiest people places I have been to are all outside of the country -- what does that say about us?

The South/Texas and Midwest. Seems to be an even toss.

True. However, I live way up in the Northeast and we've gotten a waft of the "Austin is Better Than..." attitude as well way up here! Can you guys please tone it down a bit before you start stealing Scranton's remaining residents as well before I have a chance to brainwash them into staying here? LOL!

Austin and Dallas are like bratty little kid brothers.

They like to shout, "LOOK AT ME!" and "WATCH THIS!!!" to anybody who'll listen.

Houston, the older brother, sits idly by, arms crossed... alternatively irritated and amused at the arrogance (Dallas: Houston is a dirty swamp! with more culture in one marsh than Big D can claim in all its cities?/suburbs?/cities? combined... Austin: We're so yooooneek and speshul, like no place else in Texas! I'm sure of this even though I've never been anyplace else in Texas!).

You want to slap 'em sometimes, but you can't, they're family, so you try to rise above it all and keep doing what you do, content in the knowledge that 5.5 million people can't be wrong.
