This week Facebook announced their pick for the fittest cities in America. It is no surprise to me that my own city, Virginia beach was on the tip top of the list! I have often written about how I continue to fall in love with this city. Now my two loves, Virginia Beach and fitness, have come together on one list.
This isn’t the first time Virginia Beach has been found on such a list. Earlier this year, Virginia Beach was named 18th on the top 50 fittest cities list from USA Today. In 2011 we ranked 9th out of the Shape Top 10 Fittest Cities list. In 2009 we were named #10 in Men’s Fitness Fittest Cities list. With a wonderful climate and coastline it makes sense that Virginia Beach would be hold 1st place.

1. Virginia Beach, Virginia
2. Colorado Springs, Colorado
3. Austin, Texas
4. San Antonio, Texas
