Rochester Named Happiest City :)

The 10 Happiest Mid-Sized Cities In America

Here’s what Movoto Real Estate had to say about our great city..

Are you smiling as you read this? Then chances are you live in our happiest mid-sized city, Rochester (Minnesota, not New York). According to our findings, Rochester made it to the top of our list thanks to its relatively stress-free living.

Rochester ranked 13th overall in terms of having low stress factors, which translates into a cost of living 4 percent below the national average, a commute time of just seven minutes on average, and a low 4.3 unemployment rate.

In terms of demographic reasons to be happy, only 17 percent of Rochester residents make less than $25,000 per year and 55 percent of the people who live there are married (so there are plenty of smiling couples there).
