10 Most Convenient Cities in America

Denver
Zillow Home Value Index: $194,600
Year-over-year change: -8.6%
Walk score (out of 100): 66
By rights, Denver shouldn't be convenient at all. It has plenty of room to sprawl, it's in the middle of a state where a car is a godsend and subways and commuter rail are stuff of myth.

Fortunately, nobody told Denver that. The city's regional transportation district handled 83 million riders last year, with more than 75% of that total riding the buses alone. That includes the MallRide bus taking riders the length of the mile-long 16th Street Mall and dropping them off at its shops and restaurants for free seven days a week.

The light rail did what it could by taking on 19.8 million riders last year, but a multimillion-dollar expansion of that service and commuter rail can only make it more effective.

That's if you need to use transit at all. Lucky residents of its Lodo, Gold Triangle, Capitol Hill and Cranberry Creek neighborhoods have walkable access to amenities that rivals neighborhoods in more transit-oriented cities like New York, Boston and Chicago. In fact, 43% of all neighborhoods in Dever are easily walkable and only 19% require cars -- with Southwest Denver absorbing most of that total.
