West Coast is home to healthiest cities in U.S.

West Coast cities dominated the list of healthiest cities in the U.S., according to criteria used by WalletHub.

San Francisco topped the list, followed by Seattle, Portland and San Diego.

To determine the rankings, WalletHub measured indicators of good health, such as fruit and vegetable consumption, fitness clubs per capita, and the cost of doctor visits. The availability of healthy food and the amount of green space helped San Francisco earn high points for its top billing.

Seattle was found to have the highest percentage of physically active adults, while Portland has the most healthy restaurants per capita.

Rounding out the top 10 list were Washington, D.C. (5th), followed by Burlington, Vermont, Scottsdale, Honolulu, Irvine, California and Denver.

WalletHub describes itself as the builder of the brain of "an artificially intelligent financial advisor that will truly leave your wallet full."  Its services include customized credit-improvement advice (including free credit scores and daily updates of credit reports), personalized savings alerts, and 24/7 wallet surveillance.
