The healthiest city in the nation appears to be Burlington, Vermont, where an amazing 92 percent of people say they are in good or great health. The city boasts a high exercise rate (lots of bicycling, hiking, and skiing); is among the lowest in obesity, diabetes, and other measures of ill health; and has a downtown supermarket known for selling bulk rice and healthy items to low-income residents. America’s unhealthiest city is the college town of Huntington, West Virginia.
