Austin is One of the Healthiest Cities in America!
Location matters when it comes to health. Some places promote wellness by expanding access to nutritious food and recreational facilities. Others strive to keep healthcare costs affordable for everyone or keep parks clean and well-maintained. When a city doesn’t take care of these issues, it can be hard to keep up good health. Lucky for Austinites, these issues are taken care of. In a recent study done by WalletHub, Austin ranked #14 on list of healthiest cities in America!
In order to identify the overall healthiest cities in the U.S., WalletHub compared 174 cities — including the 150 most populated U.S. cities, plus at least two of the most populated cities in each state — across four key dimensions:
1) Health Care
4) Green Space
If you live in Austin, you know that of these 4 factors, 3 of them are where we thrive most. Without getting too far into politics, the healthcare in Austin isn’t particularly bad. As for food, fitness, and green space- we’ve got plenty!
The amount of unique food in Austin is unreal. There are hundreds of healthy food options that won’t break the bank and are delicious. Take a citibike to these restaurants or walk the trail. Not only are there amazing restaurants but there are SO many active events you can attend. It’s nearly impossible to go anywhere in Austin without seeing people working out.
The best part about the green space in Austin is that food and fitness surround all of the green spaces in Austin. Go swimming at Barton Springs, have a drink at the Hyatt on the river, hike up Mt. Bonnel and look at the amazing views!
