top us cities physical activity - 370

How fit is your city? If your city has a car culture, the answer could be "not very"; if you live in a big biking city, like Portland, OR, chances are you get a lot more activity. BetterDoctors, a website that helps patients find the best doctors for their needs, gathered data from the Centers for Disease Control and the Trust for Public Land, using variables like park acreage per resident, percentage of residents at a healthy weight, and more to determine the most active cities. (Surprising spoiler alert: none of the top ten are east of the Mississippi River.) Here are the top ten U.S. cities for physical activity--and yes, a lot of them are in California:
