2 Your Health: Washington, D.C. Tops Fittest Cities List


A physicians group has put out its annual list of the healthiest cities in the United States.

Washington, D.C. tops the list of fit, healthy cities, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.

The study looked at the nation's 50 largest metropolitan areas.

Previous three-time winner Minneapolis-St. Paul dropped to second place.

Portland, Oregon; Denver, Colorado; and San Francisco, California round out the top five.

The group compared several factors, including preventive health behaviors and amenities that support physical activity and healthy living.

Memphis, Tennessee ranked last.

Researchers say this shows how much influence fathers can have in their daughters' lives.
