Do you live in one of America's most active cities? Whether it's nightlife or the outdoors, most cities claim to have a lot to offer. But a list of the available activities doesn't necessarily reveal what a city's residents are actually doing. A new study has now ranked cities based on the ratio of people who attend events, including parties, classes, seminars, music festivals, marathons and more. Eventbrite looked at America's 50 largest cities to measure how many residents lead active lives.
... Some of the largest cities in the country, including New York City and Los Angeles, didn't even make it in the top 10. New York came in 20th, and Los Angeles ranked 25th.
1. Atlanta, Ga.
2. Washington, D.C.
3. San Francisco, Calif.
4. Austin, Texas
5. Seattle, Wash.
6. Portland, Ore.
7. Minneapolis, Minn.
8. Boston, Mass.
9. Las Vegas, Nev.
10. Denver, Colo.
... The study also found that we get more active as we get older. People over the age of 60 were more likely to say they "live life to the fullest most days."
