Eden Praire: Top ten healthiest place to retire

US News reported that Eden Prairie, Minn., has been ranked on a list of 10 ten healthiest places to retire in the United States.

A team of editor's from US News traveled in the county in order to compile their list. The locations were chosen based on exercise opportunities, social connections, and overall encouragement of healthy living.

The Star Tribune reports that Eden Prairie was ranked the 3rd healthiest place to retire. While this could not be determined from the online version of the US News article, it may be listed in the print version.

Eden Prairie was selected based on the close proximity to lakes, exercise programs tailored to seniors, and an abundance of park land, among other things.
