Naples rated best beach town to live in U.S., writes travel magazine

A travel magazine rates Naples just beachy.

Travel + Leisure recently wrote that the Southwest Florida city is the No. 1 U.S. beach town to live in. The magazine cited the personal finance site WalletHub for determining the best beach towns to live in around the United States.

WalletHub ranked them according to 63 indicators, including “affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health and overall quality of life.” WalletHub rated 145 total cities.

The New York City-based monthly publication lauded Naples for its “unbeatable quality of life and relative affordability.”

“Located on Florida’s Paradise Coast along the Gulf of Mexico,” the magazine said in its April issue, “the town offers lots to see and do, including pristine, white-sand beaches and day trips to nearby Everglades National Park.”

Bonita Springs was No. 67 and Marco Island was 83rd.
