The Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis did a study entitled “Foot Traffic Ahead” to determine which cities are the easiest to get around in on foot.  They have listed the top 30 cities in the United States in the order of “Walkable” Cities.

Findings in the report were based on access to office, retail and rental multifamily occupied squared footage relative to the metro region as a whole.
