The laid-back beach town of Santa Cruz ranks number 3 on the list. Santa Cruz is a popular family vacation destination with incredibly diverse attractions. From The Boardwalk amusement park to the Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, there are seemingly unlimited things to do. Perhaps this is why residents here are happier and healthier than most of the country.
