I took the kids camping this weekend (here) and a short hike (0.4 miles) from the campground was a beach.
I know retract any comments I've made previously about obesity not being a problem. Holy cow, almost every adult there was obese, many of them morbidly so.
I was amazed at how many people were so fat they couldn't, say, walk a mile. I've read that obesity is worse in rural areas and I believe it now. I guess in the city (even in Pittsburgh where it seems everyone drives everywhere) you have to walk some and thereby get some exercise. In rural areas, you don't have to walk at all.
The number of smokers was also disappointing, as were the beer guzzling Canadians at the next-door camp site.
