Naples Distinguished as Healthiest and Happiest City in America
While it is widely known that Naples Florida real estate market is among the healthiest in America, the fact remains that Naples, as a city, is recognized as THE healthiest and happiest of metropolitan communities in all of America. For the second year in a row, Naples has garnered such distinction following studies conducted by Gallup and the research firm of Healthways. In their State of American Well-Being study, researchers considered survey responses to five core principles; and no, the subjects had nothing to do with the affluence, luxury lifestyles nor value of Naples Florida real estate which so often dominates headlines. In this case, researchers considered
- Sense of purpose
- Financial management
- Positive social relationships
- Physical health
- Community Pride
Upon reviewing responses, Naples ultimately ranked higher than any other of the 189 communities involved in the study. Researchers have similarly found that residents typically experience fewer bouts of depression and tend to be more engaged, both in terms of social interactions as well as physical activities. Of course, this isn’t anything unknown to people who live here. With above average days of sunny weather, there is almost unceasing opportunity to play golf, tennis or enjoy a stroll along the beach. There’s really no question as to why Naples ranks as America’s Healthiest and Happiest City; we enjoy a quality of life unrivaled by any other community in the world. And while we’ve consistently been recognized among America’s best places to retire and best places to vacation, the simple truth remains that Naples is a great place to live. Today, beyond the Fortune 500 retirees and seasonal snowbirds from destinations like New York, Michigan and Canada, our community is made home by a diverse mix of families, college students and young, single professionals. All have come to experience the fun in the sun and fellowship with friendly people. Interestingly, for professionals, our community also ranks among America’s best cities for job growth and job security.
While much is often said about the abundance of wealth which resides in our midst, for those of us who live here, we well understand that our riches are reflected in something far greater than that simply measured by bank deposits or values of Naples Florida real estate; our abundance is reflected in the quality of life we experience as well as the quality relationships we’re able to form with others. And for all that’s often written about the affluence of local residents, there is no escaping another truth in that our community is comprised by some of the most philanthropic folks you’ll ever encounter. Throughout the year, many strive to make a beneficial difference in the lives of others through their generous contributions to charities that support cancer research, education, children and more. This has led to recognition of our Winter Wine Festival as the world’s greatest wine auction and charity event. So, indeed, sense of purpose, community pride, positive social relationships, all are hallmarks of life here in Naples… throw in the beautiful beaches, sunny weather and amazing golf, it’s really a no-brainer that we’re so healthy and happy.
