What constitutes a happy town? It comes down to things like ample outdoor access for all, affordability, a safe environment, diversity, and freedom for residents to be who they are.
There are a number of “Best Places to Live” articles-many of which I have highlighted here.
What I really like about this article was their focus on some slightly different criteria.
People are searching for community, better quality of life, and more outdoor access. These towns check all of those boxes and then some.
