Prevention Magazine has ranked the top 100 walking cities in the US, and San Francisco was crowned champ. It’s something we’ve heard repeatedly, from city-dwelling friends to Walkscore.com… San Francisco is a walker’s paradise!
Matter of fact, we’d wager that not only can residents tell someone how to get from Point A to Point B on foot (or in a wheelchair), but to also let them know which route is the flattest. Yep, people all over this great city love getting around on their feet. It’s this fact that leads to our wonderful neighborhood sidewalks, packed with Mom & Pop shops, cafes, stores, bars, barbers, and of course, people. The pedestrian experience in San Francisco is anything but pedestrian, and enjoying this aspect of San Francisco’s character is one of the major lifestyle amenities that makes living here worth the price.
