A recent survey says you're very likely to find a smiling face in our state.

One of my favorite things about our state is the people. I love that when you lock eyes with a stranger, you're likely to be met with a smile. Maybe not a big, teeth-revealing smile, but surely a mouth-closed smile that might reach their eyes. It's just how we do things around here.

And now there is proof of this on the Internet.

Recently a Big Seven Travel conducted a survey to determine the friendliest states across the nation. Wyoming came in at number five on the list. The survey included more than 1.5 million people.

Our top five ranking most likely comes from the fact that we live in such a gorgeous state. I believe being in the great outdoors can do wonders for your health. Ultimately, if you feel good, you're going to be nicer to those around you.
