America's Most Walkable Cities
Leaving the car at home is good for your health and the environment, but some cities lend themselves to walking more than others. Whether you're moving to a new neighborhood or just curious about life outside your vehicle, check out how an area ranks on Walk Score's list of America's top-40 most walkable cities, which include San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.
If you don't see your small town on the list, type in your address to see a detailed map of the walking-distance amenities such as grocery stores, schools, and entertainment venues, and get the place's Walk Score. The scoring system factors in whether housing and businesses are mixed in the same area and whether streets are comfortable for pedestrians with bike lanes and countdown crosswalk timers.
