The Walkscore website is a fun and unique tool that actually gives cities a score based on how easily commuting can be by foot, bike and public transport. This can give you an idea of how ‘walkable’ a city is. It also tells you which neighborhoods in a city offer the most pedestrian accessible amenities.
