Fremont, California, a San Francisco Bay Area suburb with some of the best ranked schools and impressively low crime rates, is at the top of the list.

Three more California cities occupied the next three spots on the list, with San Jose, Irvine, and San Francisco finishing second, third, and fourth on the list, respectively.

Sioux Falls, South Dakota, closed out the top five, and the nation’s capital of Washington, D.C., was ranked as the 10th happiest place to live in the U.S.

In conducting the report, researchers accumulated information from 150 of the country’s largest cities, focusing on three specific categories: emotional and physical well-being, income and employment, and community and environment.
