Minneapolis one of the happiest cities in the U.S.

Put on a happy face. Minneapolis is one of the happiest cities in the country, according to a new online report.

The Daily Beast named Minneapolis the ninth happiest city in the U.S. after analyzing data for more than 100 metro areas from Gallup Hathaway’s annual “Well-Being Index.” The online publication also looked at unemployment rates, percentage of families earning more than $100,000, and the number of sunny days per year.

Washington, D.C., was named the happiest city in the country.
