  • Results according to new Gallup-Healthways poll about community well-being


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.
