If you were to guess which cities made the top 10, Sacramento might not be the first to come to mind. But as it turns out, when it comes to fitness, the people who live in California's capital are giving their Bay Area brothers a real run for their money. They're hitting the links year-round, chasing their kids around the many parks in Sacramento and surrounding cities, hiking and mountain biking the Sierra Nevada foothills, and pedaling the American River Parkway. And with California's Central Valley right in their backyards, these residents have easy access to a bounty of fresh, local fruits and veggies.
