This is Where California Ranks in 2020's Happiest States


There has been so much "bad" that has happened this year. Especially to Californians where we have experienced the tragic loss of Kobe and Gianna, protests against police brutality, riots, looting, earthquakes, wildfires and not to mention a friggin' pandemic.

It's been a hard year. So when I saw this list of the "happiest" states in 2020, I immediately blew it off because there is no way California could crack the top 10.

Well low and behold, the list making site Wallet Hub did some research and found that California is one of the happier states according to their research. See the breakdown below.
