Of course, life can’t just be rainbows and butterflies all the time, but certain places in Texas seem to deal with the bumps in the road just a little better than the rest. Creditdonkey.com did a study about the happiest cities in Texas, and compiled data from both the FBI and the U.S. Census to come up with the results. They focused on cities with a population of 50,000 or higher, and ranked each city based on the following criteria: number of restaurants, crime rate, commute, departure time, income, divorce rate, and housing costs.
With this data in mind, here are the ten happiest cities in Texas, ranked from least to most happy.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
