You can’t kale our vibe.

If you needed more proof that Seattle is a great place to live, we’ve officially cracked the top five healthiest cities in the USA, according to a recent report from WalletHub.

In order to rank the healthiest and unhealthiest cities in America, the personal finance site has analyzed a variety of factors, ranging from access to nutritious food and recreational facilities to healthcare costs and cleanliness of parks. The site then determined which areas better prioritized residents’ well being.

As far as Seattle goes, we ranked second on the overall list with a score of 70.62.

WalletHub’s data shows that Seattle’s rankings of second place in green space, third place in fitness, and fourth place in food has resulted in its high marks. Seattle also took first place in the highest percentage of physically active adults, and third place for most running trails per capita.

Topping the list with a score of 73.99 is San Francisco, California, because of its high rankings in food and green space. The five cities ranked after Seattle are San Diego, Portland, Washington, DC, New York, and Denver.
