Naples once again is tops when it comes to residents feeling happy and good about themselves.
An annual Gallup-Healthways survey of 189 cities nationwide about well-being found Naples is No.
1 where people have the highest sense of purpose and a positive outlook, according to the findings for 2016.
It is the second year in a row that Naples is at the top of the list for the
well-being survey by Gallup-Healthways.
Coming in second is Barnstable Town, Massachusetts, followed by Santa
Cruz-Watsonville, California as third. Holding the fourth spot is Honolulu,
Hawaii, and fifth is Charlottesville, Virginia, according to the findings.

The survey looks at four additional measurements of well-being after a sense of purpose, which are how people feel about their social and financial standing, their community and physical health.
The community well-being rankings are based on telephone surveys of more than 354,400 people across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, which were conducted from Jan. 2, 2015 through Dec. 30, 2016.
