Boston is ranked one of America’s most walkable cities

3 gay days in BostonSmart Growth America has issued their annual report that analyzes how walkable the country’s top 30 metropolitan areas.  Boston (again) ranked in the top five – ranking 3rd – joining:  Washington, D.C., New York City, Boston, San Francisco and Chicago. You can read more about this on Smart Growth America’s website.

Last fall Curbed Boston shared a heat map showing how walkable different neighborhoods in Boston are. North End, Chinatown and Bay Village earned a walk score of 98; the South End received an impressive score of 95.  Check out your neighborhood’s walkscore here.

I’ve been lucky enough to be able to either take public transportation or walk to work since 1999.  My neighborhood also makes it very easy to get around without needing a car which is great.

  1. During my time in Boston, I only ever got on the T when there was a danger of getting my shoes or hair wet! Boston is also fast becoming America’s Most Beautiful City.
