Naples, as well as the nearby communities of Marco Island and Immokalee, came in on the number one spot in the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being 2016 Community Rankings released Tuesday. The report which measures how residents feel about their physical health, social ties, financial security, community and sense of purpose, included 189 U.S. Cities. Barnstable Town, Massachusetts and Santa Cruz-Watsonville, California took the second and third spots respectively.
This is the second year in a row Naples and Marco Island have topped the rankings.
The report pointed to a number of factors that could contribute to the Naples area’s repeat appearance in the top spot.
