Living in a walkable city is key to being able to live car-free. The Daily Green recently published a list of the nation's 10 Most Walkable Cities as calculated by the Walk Score website, and there are a couple of surprises in the mix. Want to know if your town made the top ten? Click below.
Our beloved Chicago ranked fourth, and we're happy to report that all of the AT site cities made the list, with San Francisco at #1, New York at #2, and Los Angeles at #9. Despite LA's car-centric reputation, residents averaged high walk scores. Other AT cities that made the list include Boston (#3) and Washington, D.C. (#7).
The study was conducted by the Walk Score website with civic software group Front Seat (advised by the Sightline Institute, the Brookings Institution and Google). To see the entire list and read more, see the article from Daily Green.
