If you want to live somewhere where you’ll find financial prosperity, a strong community and a sense of purpose, you should consider moving to southern Florida, according to a new poll.
Gallup’s annual Well-Being Index ranked the North Port-Sarasota-Bradenton metropolitan area as the city with the highest well-being in the United States. Gallup conducted 176,000 interviews with residents of all 50 states on topics including physical health, financial stability, community activity and supportive relationships. Rounding out the top five on the list, which included the country’s 100 most populous, cities were Honolulu; Raleigh, N.C.; Oxnard-Thousand Oaks-Ventura, Calif. and El Paso, Texas.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, the metro area of Youngston-Warren-Boardman at the border of Ohio and Pennsylvania had the lowest well-being of major cities polled. Also in the bottom five were Toledo, Ohio; Knoxville, Tenn.; Dayton, Ohio and Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson, Ind.
