Miami placed fourth in a ranking of the top 10 healthiest cities in the U.S., says a recent release by Livability.

The local obesity rate is 12 percent below the national average partly thanks to the city's plentiful natural exercise options like canoeing the Oleta River, biking along the 30 mile South Date Trail, or hiking in Everglades National Park.

Many other factors such as the abundant options for eating organic food, high air quality, and the high doctor-to-resident ratio also played part in its ranking.

Minneapolis, Minnesota took the number one spot thanks to its abundant park system. Rounding out the bottom of the list was Yonkers, New York, due to its highly walkable neighborhoods and use of solar panels.
