This chapter makes a case for the importance of place in positive psychology. It addresses the question: Does where people live affect their psychological well-being? Despite the fair amount of research already available to help us answer that question, more research is still needed to really develop an understanding of the interplay between place and well-being. The final section of the chapter develops research agenda for further exploring the relation between place and well-being.
