7. Huntington Beach, CA
Paul Blaze, OD
I live in Irvine and practice optometry in Huntington Beach, CA. Both cities have good access to trails, beaches, and value open space.
The California lifestyle is an outdoor one. Many folks value physical fitness and have hobbies that support fitness such as:
• Mountain biking
• Paddle boarding
I surf every lunch break. Also, homes are expensive and families tend to pass down homes, so generational fitness values usually get passed on as well.
