Since kicking off our national search for the healthiest hotspots in America this month, thousands of Well+Good readers have been writing in to nominate their favorite fitness studios, smoothie bars, natural beauty salons, and healthy restaurants.

We’re loving your recommendations, all of which will help us decide which healthy towns to create Well+Good Healthy City Guides for this year.

Now that we’re in the search’s final week, we’ve tallied up the results so far. Here are the five cities in the lead for the number of wellness hotspots submitted by readers—with a popular wellness pick from each city.

Is your city or favorite wellness spot missing from the list? There’s still time to nominate it, here (and win some awesome prizes, by the way) until this Friday, February 27.

2. Chicago, IL
Owen+Alchemy. “The city’s most chic place to pick up a juice, smoothie, or other healthy treats, like an acai bowl or kelp noodle salad.” —Kristen B.

3. Atlanta, GA
