Where is the longest bone in the body located? That's right, it's in your legs. The bones in our legs are the longest and some of the strongest in our body. They support the weight of our body and help us to do 1 to 3 million steps a year. There are four major bones in our body. Our legs attach to our skeleton at our pelvis, our hips. The bone that goes from our hips to our kneecap is called our femur. That's the bone that is the longest bone in our body. We have one bone in our knee, our patella, our kneecap, that protects our knees. And then we have two bones going from our knees to our ankles, the tibia and the fibula. The tibia is the larger of the two bones while the fibula is smaller. They have to stabilize our leg and connect our knee to our ankle.
