      Totally disagree with your selections:
      1. San Francisco
      2. Boston
      3. New Orleans
      These 3 are by far the best walking cities!
      Oakland is a terrible walking city, it’s not even safe!

        Franklin:

        Have you ever taken a walk around Lake Merritt? From Wikipedia:
        Lake Merritt is a large tidal lagoon in the center of Oakland, California, just east of Downtown. It is surrounded by parkland and city neighborhoods. It is historically significant as the United States’ first official wildlife refuge, designated in 1870, and has been listed as a National Historic Landmark since 1963, and on the National Register of Historic Places since 1966. The lake features grassy shores; several artificial islands intended as bird refuges; an interpretive center called the Rotary Nature Center; a boating center where sailboats, canoes and rowboats can be rented and classes are held; and a fairy tale themed amusement park called Children’s Fairyland. A popular walking and jogging path runs along its perimeter.[4] The circumference of the lake is 3.4 miles (5.5 km) and its area is 155 acres (63 ha).
        I would suggest that you finish off your walk with a gondola (an authentic one) on the lake. It is magical.

        Have a nice day.

        You’re right. As a native of WA and Seattle-born, a walk in Seattle is great if you like both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. Lots of hills. But because of the huge traffic concerns if you don’t get hit by a car, the car fumes will kill you.

      walkable city is mostly rated on being flat and the weather and san Fran fails at that but it is a lovey city
      but I also surprised as new Orleans was not mentioned

      I lived in MIami for 15 years and still go their as often as I can.
      Have never had an incident. Miami has some bad places, as any other major city but overall – I love it!

    I lived many years in New York and it is a very beautiful multicultural city to walk. On the other hand Miami it’s not! You walk here you die of a heat stroke and nasty obnoxious careless drivers. Miami it’s not a friendly city. As a matter of fact it’s the worse in every sense, jobs, safety, crime, heat and bad weather. It pours everyday somewhere in the city.

    SEATTLE???? You must be joking. It is NOT a walkable city. There are homeless people sleeping on the sidewalks and in city parks. There are heroine needles every where, so don’t go bare foot. Also, be careful of the human feces that are also every where. Further more, the hills of Seattle make it not advised for people with heart conditions, or joint problems. Also, don’t forget your umbrella, as you walk you will likely be wet also.

    I’m surprised no one mentioned Philadelphia. Center City Philadelphia, where all the historical and cultural institutions are, is very compact, walkable, and flat. Boston is similarly so, with its famous “Freedom Trail.”
