A community along the southwestern coast of Florida has claimed the title of the nation’s happiest city for the third year in a row, according to a new poll.
Residents of the Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island metro area reported the highest scores on a Gallup-Sharecare’s survey of well-being, conducted in 2016 and 2017. The survey included people in 186 U.S. metro areas, and the scores were averaged over a two-year period.
Overall, the Naples metro area scored 67.6 out of 100 on the survey’s measure of well-being. Runners-up in the poll include Barnstable Town, Massachusetts, in the second position, and Boulder, Colorado, in third, according to Gallup-Sharecare. [The Happiest US Communities: Full List]
