America's Healthiest Cities to Visit

Slide 6 of 22

Washington, DC

The US capital is a walking city—how else to cruise the sights on the National Mall, from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial? It’s also a running city: City Running Tours leads groups (or individuals) on five-mile jogs around Georgetown or Capitol Hill.

Stay: After a two-year renovation, the Beaux-Arts landmark The Jefferson hotel reopened with modern glass-roofed atriums and a water-purification system (bottles are sealed onsite). Spa treatments incorporate herbs and botanicals grown on Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello estate and winery in Virginia.

Eat: At the buzzy Penn Quarter spot Proof, chef Haidar Karoum’s Mediterranean-inspired menu highlights vegetables in dishes like buttercrunch lettuce with avocado, grapefruit, Valencia orange and toasted quinoa; and a napoleon of crispy tofu with wild mushrooms and root vegetables.
