The newest list of "Happiest Cities in the US" is out and it definitely leans towards warm weather locations. The cities were judged on 30 key factors of happiness, such as emotional and physical well being, income and employment, and community and environment. But when you look at who topped Wallethub's list, good weather sure doesn't hurt. Just take a look at the top 5:

  1. Fremont, CA
  2. Plano, TX
  3. San Jose, CA
  4. Irvine, CA
  5. Madison, WI

As for the Commonwealth, Boston came in at #51, and Worcester at #122 (hey, we're happier than Richmond, VA!)

As for Springfield? Not on the list! The list goes up to 182 (Detroit, MI) and the birthplace of basketball didn't make the cut! Maybe we should invite these guys to the upcoming Pancake Breakfast?
