Minneapolis ranked as one of the country's most walkable cities

According to walking advocacy site Walk Score, Minneapolis is in the top ten of most walkable cities in the country.

Coming in ninth place, the city was bested by highly dense urban areas like New York City, Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago.

Minneapolis came out ahead of other large cities, though, like Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego, and Atlanta.

The Walk Score site is often used by real estate agents and house hunters to determine the walkability of a specific neighborhood. Site users can simply type in an address and get a score that indicates how easy it might be to do daily errands by foot.

The site touts the benefits of more walkable neighborhoods, noting that increased walking can benefit the environment, community involvement, and personal health.
