OP named a happiest city in America

Overland Park is one of the happiest cities in America, according to personal finance website Wallethub.

Wallethub ranks cities based on a variety of factors, including opportunities to have positive mental states, healthy bodies, strong social connections, job satisfaction and financial well-being.

Overland Park came in number 15 on the list of cities across the United States.

Some of our community’s strength points in the listing included a high “adequate sleep rating” and a low “separation and divorce rating.” Overland Park ranked highly in the survey’s “community and environment” study area.

Fremont, Calif. is the country’s happiest city, according to Wallethub. You can read the whole list and see details on the study on Wallethub’s website.
