The Happiest City in Texas | West University Place

Zippia recently surveyed 279 cities across the Lone Star State and found the City of West University Place to be the happiest place.

West U's Mayor Susan Sample says she is not surprised and well, she's happy about the selection.  Bellaire follows West U on the list at No. 2, with Colleyville at No. 3 and Greatwood, a golf-centric community off Interstate 59 South, checks in at No. 5. These suburban cities came in well above their Dallas sisters, namely Highland Park, which showed up at No. 7 and University Park at No. 10.
