America's Healthiest Cities to Visit

Slide 20 of 22

Newport, RI

Rhode Island’s grand seaside resort town has plenty of parks and beaches, and the best way to explore the area’s famous mansions is by bicycle.

Stay: The sweeping Newport Beach Hotel offers private yoga and Pilates classes, but the best action has to be outside, where beach volleyball games rage all summer long.

Eat: Housed in a former mechanic’s garage, Asterisk serves modern French dishes like steak tartare with arugula, and grilled swordfish with ratatouille.
