Statistically Speaking: Atlanta is a Great Place to Live

In our humble opinion, Highlight Homes believes Atlanta is #1!
In our humble opinion, Highlight Homes believes Atlanta is #1!

At the beginning of September 2013, Harris Interactive – one of the world’s leading market research firms – placed Atlanta as the third “happiest” metro area in America in its Harris Poll of Happiness Index. Dallas/Fort Worth snagged the top slot at #1, with the fellow Texas metropolis of Houston not far behind at #2. The people of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania indicate that they are just as happy as the Georgia Peaches of Atlanta, so – being the bastions of Southern Hospitality that we are – we share the coveted #3 position. As far as reasons for this happiness go, Atlanta beats the rest of the contenders out with our number of respondents who feel optimistic about the future at 81%.

Harris Interactive isn’t the only organization that finds Atlanta a great place to live – statistically speaking.  Our fair city has made the cut on these lists recently, as well:

  • #1 on Penske Truck Rentals “Annual Top 10 Moving Destinations”
  • #4 on Movoto’s List of “America’s Smartest Cities”
  • #17 on Sperlings Best Places List of “Most Playful Cities in America”
  • #21 on the American College of Sports Medicine’s “Top-50 Healthiest Cities”
  • #22 in Forbes Magazine’s “Best Places for Businesses and Careers”
