If your town has play fields and trails a-plenty, chances are it snagged a higher overall score in the national county-by-county health rankings, just out this week from County Health Rankings & Roadmaps. Besides outdoor recreation, the rankings consider a huge range of public health factors, from car accidents to unemployment rates.
There's even a slick interactive map where you can see how your county stacks up.
In Hernando, Mississippi, the rankings prompted the mayor to boost the health of his city through a focus on outdoor recreation. As he puts it, "We're striping bike lanes as fast as we can."
What about your city or town? How did your county rank?
