America's Healthiest Cities to Visit

Slide 21 of 22

Los Angeles, CA

Judging by its ubiquitous juice bars, bikini weather and insane exercise regimens (the drumstick-wielding Pound workout, for example), it’s fair to call Los Angeles health-obsessed.

Stay: At the hip Hotel Erwin, rooms have balcony views of Venice’s Muscle Beach and come with a free supply of surf wax for boarders looking to take advantage of the location, 200 feet from the Pacific.

Eat: Up-and-coming chef Travis Lett’s cracker-thin pizzas from a wood-burning oven are just part of the reason Gjelina is one of the most buzzed-about restaurants in town. Regulars also love Lett’s commitment to sustainable cuisine and the backyard living room and fire pit.
