Naples - Healthiest & Happiest City of the USA

Tuesday, July 11th, 2017 at 12:33pm Engel & Völkers Naples

 
Forget moving to Canada, Americans looking to find happiness in these turbulent times should head down south instead — to Naples, Florida, home of the happiest and healthiest community in the US, for the second year running! 
 

Naples and its neighboring Immokalee and Marco Island have been awarded the No. 1 spot on the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being 2016 Community Well-Being Rankings list, released today. 

The Florida community topped the pollster's list which ranked 189 communities based on responses regarding five 'key elements of well-being' — sense of purpose, positive social relationships, financial management, community pride and physical health.

Naples once again scored highly on the overall list, because 'Naples does a lot of things right,' Dan Witters, research director of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index told TODAY. '[People in] Naples really take care of themselves well.' 

'Naples had the country's highest number of residents thriving in community well-being, highest rates of healthy eating, lowest rates of daily stress and lowest lifetime diagnoses of depression,' the report stated.

Never mind the good weather, beach proximity and affluence of the community, says Gallup. 

Naples' top marks can be attributed to the 2015 launch of the Blue Zones Project in Southwest Florida, aimed at improving community well-being, coupled with the city's completion of a redevelopment project that added roundabouts, sidewalks and bike lanes.
