The happiest city in America is in Colorado, according to National Geographic”

The magazine listed its "25 Happiest Places in the United States" this week, and Boulder ranked No. 1 and Fort Collins ranked No. 4.

A survey sponsored by National Geographic shows that Charlottesville ranked third among USA cities for happiness based on lifestyle and environment, finishing behind Boulder, Colorado and Santa Cruz, California.

The study measured 15 different aspects that included healthy eating habits, financial security, vacation time, and how easy it is to learn something new.

The cities were ranked based on the National Geographic/Blue Zones® Index, which was developed to measure happiness based on civic engagement, walkability and healthful food options.

Researchers interviewed almost 250,000 people to compile the list. "Cities like Boulder question the unquestioned virtues of development", Buettner told National Geographic.

According to the list, the happiest city in the country is Boulder, Colorado.

"This benefits visitors, who can experience an emphasis on greenery, a high-quality culinary community, limited marketing onslaught and no billboards".

"Most think of Washington, D.C".

Charlottesville comes in at No. 3 on the list, just behind Santa Cruz, California, and Boulder, Colorado.
