Graphics and more below.
Last week, we told you about the latest Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, popularly known as the happiest cities list, as well as the two Colorado places that finished in the top ten. But because Gallup-Healthways also produced a survey specifically about the State of Colorado, we're able to drill even deeper into facts and figures about five major cities here: Boulder, Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins and Greeley. Count down our top five categories below, featuring photos, graphics and the state report.

Number 5: The state you're in

Before we get to the cities, let's take a look at how the State of Colorado stacks up against others in the U.S. of A. As you can see, Colorado slipped a bit from 2012 to 2013, going from the second happiest state to the seventh. But we're still top ten, baby!

Boulder is simply wonderful....if you're a Cali-Yuppie transplant with your head completely up your ass. Most overrated town in this state.

It seems that the more religious the area is the less happy it is. Look at the bottom ten states and they are almost all bible belt and the most religious city in Colorado ranked the lowest in happiness. Hmm.
