Wyoming is the least populous state, and its capital of Cheyenne only has a population of 63,624. Despite having so few people, the state is ranked fifth for its accessibility to arts, entertainment, and recreational activities. This, combined with its low crime rates, wide open spaces, and mild, sunny weather, make Wyoming the top-ranked state for well-being. Wyoming is home to Yellowstone National Park, and is well-known for outdoor sports such as skiing and fishing.
