"Are you in a “happy place”? ~Sounds like a funny question, but in the most recent “State of American Well-Being” report, the Gallup-Heathways ‘Well-Being Index’ measured Americans perceptions of happiness! Both physical and emotional health, as well as healthy behaviors, work environment, social and community factors, financial security, and access to necessities such as food, shelter and health care came into play when determining what American cities could be deemed "happy"! *Gallup conducted 500 telephone interviews every day throughout 2013 nationwide. Guess who turned up in the Top Ten? That’s right, Naples ranks number 7 for ‘happiness’ out of all American cities! Topping the list was Provo, Utah at number one, and rounding out the top 10 is Lincoln, Nebraska. Naples was the only town in Florida to make the top 15 list! Click here is you are interested in the full State of American Well-Being report.
