America's Healthiest Cities to Visit

Slide 10 of 22

Boston, MA

A historical mecca, Boston is fun to explore on foot: The 2.5-mile Freedom Trail covers 16 important sites, including the Paul Revere House and the setting for the Boston Massacre. For those who want to admire the city by water, Charles River Canoe & Kayak lets customers pick up and drop off between its Boston and Cambridge locations.

Stay: Fitness perks are plentiful at the Liberty Hotel, which offers complimentary bikes, weekend yoga classes and guided running tours around the city.

Eat: Set in a former firehouse, O Ya is run by F&W Best New Chef 2008 Tim Cushman, who puts ingenious spins on Japanese fare, like grilled sashimi of chanterelle and shiitake mushrooms with homemade soy, and Kumamoto oyster with watermelon pearls and cucumber mignonette.
