This Tiny Florida Town Is One Of The Happiest Places In America

You might have heard the awesome news that the city of Naples has been named the happiest city in America for the past two years in a row. The #1 ranking was according to data gathered by the Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being 2016 Community Rankings, which looked at the physical health, financial well-being, social connections, community and sense of purpose in life of residents in 189 cities across the United States.

Now we have even more good news! Coastal Living‘s annual list of the Happiest Seaside Towns in America is out for 2017, and two places in Florida made the list, including one of our favorite small towns!
