When you’re standing in a sweaty, crowded subway with your arms glued to your sides, or when your legs start to cramp from sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you probably wish there was a more convenient way to get where you need to go. Imagine if you could just walk to your destination—to the grocery store, your favorite bar or restaurant.
In these cities, that fantasy is a reality. FindTheHome teamed with FindTheCompany to use geographic data to assign each city a relative “WalkIQ.” This is measured by finding the number of stores, amenities and parks that are within walking distance for the median home in every area. They then ranked the 10 most walkable cities to find those where your feet are your best mode of transport.
