MIAMI - Yeah, the traffic is miserable, the crime isn't pretty and, according to those Dirty Dining reports, some of the restaurants need serious help; but believe it or not, Miami is the healthiest city in the U.S.

Number one. Numero uno. Númer eitt (that's Icelandic, obviously).

In the study of the world's healthiest cities by TravelSupermarket.com, Miami ranked sixth overall and tops in country.

That means the "Magic City" beat out such notable burgs such as San Francisco, Milan, Madrid, New York City and Amsterdam.

The study used a number of factors in determining the final rankings, including parks, sunlight hours, gym & fitness centers, health food shops, and vegan-option restaurants.

Miami ranked highly among all elements.

  • HEALTH FOOD SHOPS - 1st
  • SUNLIGHT HOURS - 9th
  • PARKS - 11th
  • SPAS - 12th 
  • VEGAN-OPTION RESTAURANTS - 12th
  • GYMS - 16th
  • YOGA & PILATE CENTERS - 26th
  • COST OF 1 NIGHT STAY - 49th

However, as hard as it is to believe, there are some cities that are considered healthier than Miami. Number one in the world is Paris, followed by Chiang Mai and Barcelona. CLICK HERE to see the full list.
