If you can’t figure out where to plan your upcoming family travel, WalletHub has you covered. Recently, personal finance website WalletHub released its report on 2022’s Happiest States in America.


Happiness comes from a combination of internal and external factors, influenced by location, attitude and who we spend time with. To determine where Americans have the highest satisfaction with life, WalletHub compared all 50 states across 30 key indicators of happiness. The data ranges from depression rate to income growth, and employment rate to the share of adults feeling productive.


The study found the top five happiest states in America are:


  1. Hawai’i
  2. Maryland
  3. Minnesota
  4. Utah
  5. New Jersey

The experts concluded emotional and physical well-being were the most important factors to determine the overall happiness of adults in a state, with work and community environment following closely behind.


Previous studies found good economic, emotional, physical and social health are key factors to a fulfilled life. Some other key findings include: People feel the safest in Vermont and Maine; and Utah, Colorado, and Vermont, have the highest adult sport and workout participation.
