From the list I would say Los Angeles.

Not a fan of NOLA at all, saw it once pre-Katrina, that was enough for me.
Las Vegas....3 days and I'm outta there....3 days is all I can take, I don't think people are happy there.

I thought Denver CO was the healthiest state based on the obesity reports. The Northeast does pretty well too.
