The Beach Cities are a Blue Zones Community
Thank you for being part of the Blue Zones Project® community well-being transformation in the Beach Cities!
The Beach Cities – Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach – were named a nationally certified Blue Zones Community® in 2016. The Beach Cities are the largest community to achieve Blue Zones Community certification through the successful implementation of Blue Zones Project, which launched in 2010 to make the healthy choice the easy choice for residents and employees of this community.
The certification announcement comes on the heels of recently released Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index® data showing measurable declines in smoking, overweight and significant daily stress rates throughout the three cities from 2010 to 2015. Collectively, the Beach Cities earned a 2015 Well-Being Index score of 65.9, ranking us among the elite well-being communities in the U.S.
