Boston Named 3rd Most-Walkable City in the U.S.

With the summer approaching so quickly, Bostonians can finally come out of hibernation and enjoy Boston to the fullest. Part of that is taking advantage of the city's incredible walkability. 

According to Walk Score, Boston is the third most walkable city in the United States. With New York on the first place and San Fransisco on the second place.

Boston received a “Walk Score” of 80.1, which is a 1.2 point increase in the city's walkability score from last year.
