We just keep living the dream here in Naples.
A new study from WalletHub named Naples the “best beach town to live in,” topping a list of 146 seaside communities. The study looked at several factors in its rankings, including affordability, weather, safety, economy, education, health and overall quality of life. In particular, Naples had the best quality of life out of all the communities, according to the study, in part fueled by the fact that apparently we had the highest number of coffee shops, restaurants and nightlife establishments per capita.
Nine of the top 20 cities were in Florida. Marco Island (No. 47) and Bonita Springs (No. 66) also made it.
This is the second time Naples has topped this ranking—and just the latest in what’s become a long list of accolades for the city (aka, reasons to brag to your friends who still live up north).
