With winter on its way here in Alaska soon, it’s made me realize how important it is to embrace what’s left of the summer, well now fall, and the outdoors without all the freezing temps and snow. I’ve made it a point to get outside more for my daily runs and to walk the dogs whenever I can. My pups love walks and going on long adventures outdoors together. The fall here is just beautiful with all of the changing colors and the bright sun that shines most days. Fall, although short, is definitely the best season Alaska has to offer (it’s a fact).
The extreme winters we get here though can make it somewhat difficult to want to get outside and stay active through those long winter months. Right here, I’ve inserted a map of the 10 most active cities in the U.S. . While we don’t have summer all year-round or great public parks or committed bike lanes like some of these cities, there’s always a way to stay active. It’s also useful to research some of these active cities for future moves to see what they have to offer in terms of a healthy, active lifestyle.
