Like their neighbors down the coast in Portland, Seattlites embrace a healthy lifestyle. The city doesn't have the high number of golf courses, recreation centers, and parks of other ranked metro areas, but that doesn't stop this city from exercising regularly – running, cycling, or sea kayaking the many waterways flanking the city. The resilience is pretty impressive, given how often it rains. Seattle residents also eat lots of fresh-caught fish and Washington-grown apples and other produce, which keeps them thin and their hearts healthy.
