If you want to live a healthier lifestyle, you might want to consider heading to San Francisco. 

That’s according to a new report from WalletHub, which found the healthiest cities in the U.S. in 2022. San Francisco was at the top of the list. 

For its report, WalletHub compared 182 cities – made up of the 150 most populated U.S. cities and at least two of the most populated cities in each state – using 43 metrics.
