What are you planning to do in America's busiest cities this year? Enjoy these amazing walkable cities!
6. Jackson, WY
Before you're too surprised to find Jackson among the easiest cities in America to get around, hear us out. Wyoming's wilderness stretches in all directions from Jackson. You may want to join a shuttle for a ride in the mountains, but within city limits, you'll give your hiking boots a run for the money. Here, the streets are lined with art galleries and museums. Take a look at Snow King Mountain and the National Elk Refuge and you will see why these local artisans are so inspired.
Walk this way: you will spend a lot of time walking, that's a fact. But don't miss an invigorating afternoon or morning strolling through Town Square, officially known as George Washington Memorial Park. Walk under the horn arch into the world of old Jackson, with carriage rides, a gunfight at the Jackson Hole Playhouse, and many restaurants and shops.
Pit stop: feeling fancy? Make a reservation at Wild Sage, the award-winning culinary gem at The Rusty Parrot Lodge. Enjoy organically grown produce, local meat, and game, and sustainably caught seafood, all prepared right before your eyes in the exhibition-style kitchen.
7. Long Beach, CA
Southern California is known for its intricate networks of busy roads. Thanks to the Long Beach 70's Walk Score, you can jump off the asphalt and walk along the shore on your own two feet. Located 25 miles south of Los Angeles, this port city is the perfect place to explore postcard-perfect Southern California. Walk under the shade of palm trees, dip your feet in the Pacific Ocean, and see the region's multicultural art scene and maritime history.
Walk this way: Walk, jog, or bike along the Shoreline pedestrian bike path from Shoreline Village to downtown Long Beach for stellar views of the sunset. This beautiful trail is frequented primarily by two-wheelers, but hikers are more than welcome, and the trail is wheelchair accessible to accommodate adventurers of varying abilities.
Pit Stop: Reward yourself after a long walk with delicious drinks and ocean views at Cielo at the Sky Room. We really can't think of a better combination than a walk and a mezcal cocktail by the sea. Drink the spicy Paloma mezcal and tell us we're wrong.
8. Key West, FL
Walking with the warm ocean breeze at your back is what dreams are made of, and Key West's easy walk score of 64 makes that dream a reality. The closer you are to the nearest strip of sand, the easier it will be to navigate the city. And trust us; there is a lot of sand. The relatively small key is among the most walkable cities in the south, but be aware that public transportation is limited. You can bring a few friends to help carry your luggage back to the hotel for a shopping tour down Duval Street.
Go this route: Key West is great for four-legged friends too! Take you and Fido for a stroll through downtown Dog Beach and stop for a photoshoot a few blocks away at Southernmost Point on mainland America for a true bucket-list moment.
Pit Stop: Beloved local Louie's Backyard strikes the perfect balance between good food and casual amenities. Chef Doug Shook prepares sophisticated Caribbean cuisine served in a cozy Victorian setting near Dog Beach. He orders a cup and drinks as the sun goes down.
9. Arlington, VA
Arlington may be synonymous with the bustling halls of America's troublemakers and troublemakers, but Northern Virginia residents know this is the place to hang out. Enjoy that hustle and bustle along the many nature trails that criss-cross the community. In addition to a remarkable 69-point Walk Score, Arlington boasts one of the best ParkScores in the country - an impressive 76.5, awarded by the Trust for Public Land. So pack your hiking boots for your next visit to the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
Walk This Way: With over 1,100 acres of parkland attracting raves and 120 miles of scenic hiking trails, you're sure to find your way around Arlington. The Mount Vernon Trail runs nearly 18 miles along the west side of the Potomac River, providing a historically rich route for walkers, joggers, and cyclists.
Pit Stop: The easiest neighborhoods to get around include Clarendon - Courthouse and Lyon Village. Dine on a beautiful Balkan brunch in Ambar. Beetroot tzatziki is almost too pretty to eat and will pair perfectly with your berry mimosa.
10. Jersey City
Between Lower Manhattan and Newark, Jersey City is a promising city for young professionals looking for an affordable alternative to all five neighborhoods. Stroll among the historic brownstones and immerse yourself in the trendy bars and independent art galleries that illuminate the city with contemporary colors and personality. Jersey City's 87 Walk makes it a great option for travelers who want easy access to the Big Apple, as well as international restaurants and a thriving boutique scene near the boardwalk.
Follow this path: visit lush Liberty State Park and walk to the Empty Sky Memorial on the boardwalk. This elegant monument pays tribute to the 749 who lived in New Jersey before losing their lives in the September 11 attacks that changed the landscape of America forever.
Pit stop: after a night on your feet, nothing better than putting on comfortable shoes and warming up with a fresh cup of coffee. The staff of madcap coffee co. They are real coffee roasters and they have three locations in the city as well as a coffee truck, they bring java joy to the masses. You'll find them on the West Side, The Heights, and Journal Square, perfect for fueling your many walks around town.
