The Best City In America Is Actually Right Here In Alaska

According to a January 2016 survey published by the NY Post, the happiest people in America live in Alaska and Hawaii. Alaska is the largest and most sparsely populated state in the nation. It’s known for its dramatic, diverse terrain of wide-open spaces. Mountains and forests are flooded with abundant wildlife. Rivers, lakes and oceans are known for their world-class fishing. And most importantly, the many small towns and remote villages that make up Alaska are filled with an immense amount of respect for Alaska Native culture and pride for the last frontier.
