The city gets an “A” from WalletHub when it comes to its “Best & Worst Cities for Florida Families”. A few years back the website ranked Naples as number five overall, but number one in terms of health, safety and education.
That’s not surprising considering the large number of exceptional schools in Naples. Many of the area’s great schools are also close to family-friendly neighborhoods, which is extremely appealing for local parents.
