Charlottesville Named in Top 5 Healthiest Cities

January 19, 2010

In the February issue of Men's Journal magazine, Charlottesville is listed as one of the healthiest cities to live in the country.

The new accounting used information compiled by Sperling's Ranked and Rated in their Best Places to Live survey to give editors a snapshot of long term health conditions.

The national magazine looked at quality-of-life issues that contribute to a healthier lifestyle, including availability of local farms and products, shorter commute times, sidewalk access, low pollution levels, available green spaces and mild climate and sunny days.

The other healthiest cities are Iowa City, Iowa; Boulder, Colo.; Logan, Utah; and Northampton, Mass.
