According to a new Gallup survey, the North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota community is among the Top 3 in the nation for well-being. With a rating just .3 percent behind the two communities that tied for first, the difference is not statistically significant, according to Gallup. For metrics used in the analysis, our community was first in the “Financial” metric (managing your economic life to reduce stress and increase security), and second in “Social” (having supportive relationships and love in your life). We agree: It’s a great place to live, work, play – and love!
