When it comes to health, location matters. And personal finance resource WalletHub decided to investigate just where exactly those locations are in the United States, right now. An in-depth analysis compared 150 of the most populated U.S. cities across 34 key indicators of good health, ranging from cost of doctor’s visits to access to healthy foods, fitness clubs per capita to availability and quality of green spaces. All to determine which cities throughout the States offer the healthiest lifestyles and in the process, truly prioritize their residents’ well-being.

Here, the top 10 healthiest cities in the United States right now, including a whopping 4 health and wellness hot spots in California and 1 lone, east coast outlier. (Don’t get your hopes up, fellow NYC dwellers – unsurprisingly we did not make the list.)
