It turns out that wintery Boston and its surrounding suburbs have earned the title of being the top “active living community” in the U.S., as a result of investments in public areas like bike lanes and parks, according to the report published today by Gallup.

The top five cities included three East Coast metro areas, one Midwest and one West Coast city.

1. Boston–Cambridge–Newton, MA–NH

2. San Francisco–Oakland–Hayward, CA

3. Chicago–Naperville–Elgin, IL–IN–WI

4. New York–Newark–Jersey City, NY–NJ–PA

5. Washington–Arlington–Alexandria, DC–VA–MD–WV

The lowest scorers included metro areas in the South and Midwest, including Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Cities with the lowest scores were found to have higher rates of negative health conditions including depression, obesity, diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and smoking.
