These Streets Were Made for Walking

Local urban trekkers rejoice. DC has made it onto the list of most walkable cities in the U.S., according to Walk Score, which “helps people find walkable places to live.” Top marks go to areas with a high density of nearby stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc. and how easy it is to live a car-lite lifestyle. As gas prices continue to hover around $4 a gallon, there’s no better time to break out the sneakers and SIGG water bottle and hit the pavement.

The ranking is further broken down by neighborhood. Here are the top 10 for our area:

  1. Dupont
  2. Logan Circle
  3. Downtown
  4. U Street Corridor
  5. Foggy Bottom
  6. Mount Vernon Square
  7. Adams Morgan
  8. Kalorama
  9. Friendship Heights
  10. Georgetown
