How happy are you and your neighbors? Do you see your home state as a place offering a great quality of life when it comes to your emotional well-being? Do you enjoy a satisfying career? After work or on weekends, do you find plenty of community and recreational activities to keep you and your family busy and fit? 

WalletHub recently ranked the 50 states, and included the District of Columbia for good measure, from the happiest to least happy places to live.
