Rochester Named Happiest City :)
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).
