People who live in more health-conscious communities are more likely to have stronger and healthier hearts.

Access to neighborhood grocers promotes good health.

Living near sidewalks and parks helps promote movement, and a website can now be used to find each state’s most walkable city.

According to WalkScore.com, Homewood is Alabama’s most walkable city.

That means residents of Homewood have plenty of access to walkways, parks and healthy eateries.

Selma and Birmingham are second and third in the website’s survey, respectively.
