All 5 of Ohio's large cities didn't score well in a recent happiness study, but there are 3 cities that are among the worst in the nation.  Full disclosure: I am from Michigan and it pains me to say that this study from Wallet Hub ranked Detroit, Michigan the most unhappy city in the United States.  Grand Rapids had more of a mediocre rank being the 85th happiest in the country out of the 182 largest cities.  You can see more on that by clicking here.

Cleveland, Ohio, sad, unhappy

#7 Toledo, Ohio

The city that Ohio went to war with Michigan over, is the second most unhappy city in Ohio and the 7 most unhappy in the U.S.  Toledo got it's worst score for "Emotional and Physical Well-Being."
