Trulia's Ralph McLaughlin shares the company's new Live Well map, which guides home seekers toward the country's most healthy and active neighborhoods.
The study favors neighborhoods with quiet streets, "play-centric" amenities (such as parks and trails), and a concentration of health care facilities, such as hospitals, physicians, pharmacies and daycare centers.
- The best neighborhoods for living well in small metros (population less than 1 million people) are in Charlottesville, Va., and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
- The best neighborhoods for living well in midsized metros (population between 1 and 2 million people) are in San Francisco, Calif., and New Orleans, La.
- The best neighborhoods for living well in large metros (population more than 2 million people) are in San Diego, and Los Angeles.
