Time Out (Melbourne) - - INSIDE -

HERE’S SOME NEWS that prob­a­bly won’t come as a sur­prise: the Time Out City Life In­dex has re­vealed that Mel­bourne is not only one of the most ex­cit­ing cities in the world for cul­ture and go­ing out, it’s also one of the hap­pi­est. We polled 15,000 peo­ple from 32 cities around the world and asked them ques­tions re­lat­ing to their life­style habits and their feel­ings about life in the city, rang­ing from how of­ten they go out for dinner to how they’d rate their city for af­ford­abil­ity, safety and friend­li­ness. While Mel­bourne lost out over­all to Chicago, Porto and New York, there was one fac­tor where we came out on top: hap­pi­ness. Nine out of ten Mel­bur­ni­ans said they felt happy in the past 24 hours, and two out of three said they find it easy to make friends. A whop­ping 80 per cent of Mel­bur­ni­ans rated their lo­cal bar and food scene as out­stand­ing, and 74 per cent of Mel­bur­ni­ans agreed that “there’s al­ways some­thing to do or see”. High-fives all round!
