The San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara Metro area once again made a top list, this time for its residents' healthy living habits.

According to WallSt.com, the San jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara Metro is the second healthiest city in the United States.

"Life expectancy in the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara metro area is 82.7 years, the highest in the country. Healthy behavior plays a role in the residents’ long life expectancy. More than 98% of the population has access to places for physical activity such as recreation centers and parks. As a result, area residents are more likely to lead active lifestyles than most Americans."
