Fourth-fittest city in America: San Francisco
It's not surprising that a city that tried to ban Happy Meals (
found a way around the prohibition) ranks high for fitness.
The AFI study found that San Francisco has the lowest rates of both smoking (11% of the population) and obesity (18.6%) among communities analyzed.
The City by the Bay also boasts low per-capita death rates from diabetes and cardiovascular disease, while twice as many residents as average walk or bike to work relative to the community's population.
And while San Francisco has below-average per-capita numbers of baseball fields, swimming pools and other exercise-promoting facilities, locals do have access to more than three times the typical number of dog parks relative to the community's population.
