Healthiest, Happiest, Most Relaxed City in the United States – Naples, Florida

After the emotional last 2 years, if there is one thing we as a nation have realized it is that life is too short to spend being unhappy and in unease. Gone are the days where people would give minimal thought to their choice of residence; self-care is peaking and where you live is the best determinant of such care. Let us together bid the stress goodbye and let the New Year mark the beginning of a new us; ones who are content and madly in love
with where they live!

Cue Naples, Florida, thoroughly acclaimed as the best, happiest, and most relaxed city to live in. Don’t believe us, let these few accolades speak on our behalf:

  • Naples, FL Ranked the 2nd Best Place to Retire and Top 15 Places to Live (U.S. News & World Report)
  • Healthiest, Happiest, Most Relaxed City in the United States (Gallup-Sharecare)
  • No. 1 for Well-being in the U.S. for the Fourth Straight Year (Gallup)
  • Top 5 Best Place to Live in Florida (HomeSnacks)

These, among hundreds of others, vouch for the all-encompassing city that is Naples.

Sunniest Place on Earth

With as many as 300 sun-filled days every year, and an average temperature of 77 degrees, winter isn’t on Naples’ radar. Living here, you can also bid the miserable rainy days goodbye, which much of the rest of America endures on a regular basis.

Safety above All

You can rest easy in Naples knowing that this is one of the safest areas in Florida. Naples boasts a crime rate almost 90% lower than the Florida average, and 57% safer than other US cities. It’s a city where residents feel safe walking alone or parking their car on the street.

Blue Zone

In 2015, the NCH Healthcare System based in Naples, inaugurated Naples as a “Blue Zones Project”, i.e. an area where there are a large number of people that live a longer than average life span. With its numerous outdoor activities (including hiking trails, golf courses, etc.) and prioritization of fresh foods even in restaurants, the city is a hub of people who wish to live long and healthy.

High Happiness Levels

Naples has routinely made the "Best Place to Retire list" (2021-2022 Ranked #2 in the Nation!) given the whopping levels of happiness the city boasts. The residents of Naples are oh-so-happy, and why wouldn’t they be! Think about the beautiful weather, year-round beaching, golfing and more, what more could people want from their hometown.

Gorgeous Beaches

WalletHub has named Naples the "Best Beach Town to Live In," and for good reasons too. Our favorite beaches in the city include Naples Municipal Beach and Pier, Vanderbilt Beach, and Barefoot Beach, to name a few. While the Naples Pier is the perfect place to catch a sunset, the Barefoot Beach is a great place to get away from the crowds you’ll see at other nearby beach spots.

Cultural City

Naples has ranked number five in Museums, according to Narcity. Leading the city to this ranking was the Marco Island Historical Museum, which tells the story of this luxurious island off Naples' mainland. Moreover, the city is home to more than 75 art galleries, where residents experience a range of musical performances spanning all preferences from classical to rock.
