Travel Blissful has decided on the most walkable cities in America:

1. San Francisco (Chinatown, Financial District, Downtown)
2. New York (Tribeca, Little Italy, Soho)
3. Boston (Back-Bay Beacon Hill, South End, Fenway-Kenmore)
4. Chicago (Loop, Near North Side, Lincoln Park)
5. Philadelphia (City Center East, City Center West, Riverfront)
6. Seattle (Pioneer Square, Downtown, First Hill)
7. Washington D.C. (Dupont Circle, Logan Circle, Downtown)
8. Long Beach (Downtown, Belmont Shore, Belmont Heights)
9. Los Angeles (Mid City West, Downtown, Hollywood)
10. Portland (Pearl District, Old Town-China Town, Downtown)

I disagree with New York being so high up on the list.

I agree with Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia. I have walked a lot in those three cities and loved every second.

New York, not so much, I found the sidewalks were not very well taken care of and also that the drivers were aggressive to pedestrians.\

Where is your favourite place to walk?

I disagree with San Francisco entirely! All of those hills add up fast. I loved the city, but trying to walk around for an entire day is nearly impossible - my family took a trolley down to the harbors and then attempted to walk back but soon gave up from exhaustion!

I'm not so sure about Los Angeles either. Hollywood is often quite crowded, making walking difficult in my opinion.

D.C. isn't too bad, and neither is New York City.

Of the cities I've been to (not many on that list), I would say Boston is the best for walking. I go to school there and walk nearly everywhere. I walk to and from the North End, the Back Bay, Fenway, Beacon Hill, Chinatown, Newbury Street, and several other places. The freedom trail, for example, takes you all over the city but is easily walked in a few hours.
