These 10 Places Have The Healthiest People In All Of Alaska

I don’t mean to brag, but Alaska is a healthy and active state. In 2013, Alaska was rated the number one most active state in the nation; for countless years, it has been at least ranked in the top 5. That’s pretty impressive, but let’s narrow it down a bit more.

The state itself may be an active one, but not every city is as healthy as the next – we’ve dug up the ten healthiest places to live in Alaska (by county). The ranking takes into consideration a wide range of factors from environmental, social and economical, to things such as smoking, obesity, access to exercise, inactivity, teen births, STI’s, excessive drinking, employment, and community safety.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
