Denver Area Named One of the Healthiest Places to Live in 2021
There's no denying most Coloradans love the great outdoors, but that's just one of the things that makes our state a 'healthy' place to live, especially during a pandemic.
According to Wallethub's Healthiest & Unhealthiest Cities in America list for 2021, the Denver area ranked tenth in the nation. While cities like San Francisco, Seattle and Portland beat us, we're definitely getting more sunshine in the Mile High.
Wallethub's study only looks at the 150 most populated cities in the country, and ranks them based on health care (which also includes COVID-19 cases), access to healthy foods, physical fitness and exercise, and open space.
Nearby, Colorado Springs and Aurora ranked 54 and 55, respectively, and Cheyenne, WY ranked 121 out of the 150. You can see the full report here.
