…the Sunshine State remains among the most desirable places in the country.
Fourteen Florida cities made the new 2023-24 list of the 150 “Best Places to Live in the U.S.” that U.S. News & World Report released Tuesday.
Florida is home to four of the top five “Fastest Growing Places” and four of the top five “Safest Places.”
Sarasota was ranked No. 5, again leading the state as the top place to live. Naples was the only other Florida city to make the top 10, at No. 6.
6. Naples is ‘retirement spot for the rich, powerful’
In the Know: Built in 2014, this Naples beachfront residence at 25 16th Ave. sold for $62 million on June 30, 2022, setting a new Collier County record.
This long-ago sleepy fishing town jumped to No. 6 this year from No. 12. Naples also ranked as the No. 1 safest place. Last year, the magazine referred to Naples as “a preferred retirement spot for the rich, powerful and cold-averse,” with “pristine beaches, sprawling golf courses, and fine dining and shopping. Naples, the 2023-24 list said, jumped into the Top 10 because of its “high desirability score,” meaning the city scored well as a place where people want to live, based on SurveyMonkey polling in March…which ranked Naples #1…for places to live in the U.S. by Scholaroo, a nonprofit educational research company and scholarship website engine.
