Last year, Good Housekeeping said that Charlottesville was a happy place to live. This year, Harvard researchers have noted that Charlottesville is the “happiest city” in which to live.
The survey questioned people across the country about how happy and content they were and inquired into how satisfied they were with their lives.
Of course, it’s easy to be happy living in a town that has been named the best town for food lovers by Wine Magazine; best college town in the country by Traveler’s Today; most exciting place in Virginia by Movoto; one of the top five destinations in the country by Luxury Travel; one of the country’s favorite mountain towns by Travel & Leisure; one of the happiest and healthiest by Business Insider; and the second most friendly small city, again by Movoto.
Hooray. Happiness is subjective, but I’ve been here for about 25 years; Charlottesville is a great place to live.
