Here is 24/7 Wall St.’s Happiest (and Most Miserable) Cities in America list, and what had to say about Greeley:

“Greeley is one of several metropolitan areas situated along Interstate 25 in the Front Range region of Colorado where residents are among the happiest in the country. Greeley residents report having a strong sense of purpose. Approximately 82% of surveyed residents enjoy what they do every day, and 76% believe they are able to use their strengths to the best of their ability in daily life, compared to 77% and 69% of Americans, respectively. Greeley’s healthy job market may be one reason why so many residents find fulfillment in their lives and careers. Just 2.8% of the area’s workforce is unemployed, nearly the smallest share of any city.”
