Long Island is being called one of the healthiest places in the country for women.
Women who were surveyed said they love Long Island's beaches, the abundance of seafood, the great schools for their kids and all the role model coaches leading the way on and off the field.
"There is so much to do here. You can go to the Hamptons and no matter the weather, you can go jog on Jones Beach," said [Long Island student Devon] Carroll.
These are just some of the reasons why Long Island now ranks as the second healthiest place for women, both mentally and physically, in the nation, ranking only after San Francisco in a study just released by Self Magazine.
