According to Forbes...Utah earned the highest marks. Here residents reported a high level of satisfaction in several areas, including work environment, emotional health and their local communities. One major factor for Utah's strong performance might be its unemployment rate: When last reported in January, it was 4.6% compared with a national rate of 7.6%.
Hawaii ranked second, followed by Wyoming, Colorado and Minnesota. West Virginia ranked last, and manufacturing-reliant states like Michigan and Ohio also landed in the bottom 10.
Wyoming and Colorado I really loved being there. Wyoming is one of the few states that rarely have any severe weather, and they have Yellowstone National Park, which has breath taking beauty, and the mountains are majestic. Its a beautiful state, and Colorado is also.
