Great town for walking. Great town for eating. And now the food truck capital of the world. 8.5 miles. 4 hours. 1,000 burned calories. Let's go.
Even if you exercise vigorously for an hour daily, too much sitting the rest of the day significantly increases your risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity. So when you're in front of your TV or computer, do this for a minute, every hour or two.
Easy to find a great hike here. Seems like the entire coastline is preserved, maintained and public. And very, very beautiful. Two, three or four hours on the Cape Sebastian Trail. 1,200 - 1,800 calories burned. Four to seven miles; depends where you decide to turn around.
