Spanish city Barcelona came at the second spot, while San Francisco took the third position owing to its 3,480 acres of parks and three golf courses.

London and Sydney took the fourth and fifth positions, respectively.

Compiled by AskMen.com, the list was made on the basis of metrics like money, women and success, but it mainly focussed on how healthy the city was.
