The best way to discover a city, whether it’s your own or one you’re visiting, is on foot. A new survey has ranked cities across the country to compile a list of the best places in the country to go for a stroll. Pack up your strollers and baby carriers and check out the list below.
Smart Growth America’s Foot Traffic Ahead, a survey of the country’s most walkable urban areas, ranked the top 30 most walkable cities. Using the data compiled, the rankings were determined based on a few common factors, like proximity to businesses, dining, and entertainment, as well as access to public transit and multi-family rentals.
The top ten cities for 2017 are:
- New York City
- Washington D.C.
