St. Louis and Kansas City are the top two happiest cities in the U.S.! Jetpac analyzed more than 100 million Instagram photos of people smiling and laughing and created a list of the 20 happiest cities in the U.S.
So, what has these two Missouri cities grinning ear to ear? Well for starters, the St. Louis Cardinals went to the World Series this year and Kansas City is overflowing with Chiefs pride. St. Louis has some amazing eateries that have been getting a lot of attention (Pappy’s, Sweetie Pies, Three Sixty Rooftop to name a few) and Kansas City, two words… Plaza Lights. How could you not have a smile on your face at the Country Club Plaza during the holidays?
People in Kansas City and St. Louis also smile a lot, thanks to the free fun attractions each offers. The Saint Louis Zoo is one of the top free zoos in the nation, while Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City offers a chance to explore art created by world renowned artists without spending a dime.
