9. Baltimore, Md.
Walk Score: 64
Transit Score: 57
Just turn off that episode of
The Wire for a second and hear us out. Baltimore doesn't have a whole lot of neighborhoods that fit the bill, but if you follow the 100 line northwest of the Inner Harbor there are some gems. South and west of Johns Hopkins University near Druid Hill Park has great rail access, lots of grocery stores and other amenities and tons of ZipCar access courtesy of the surrounding universities. Mid-Town, Belvedere, Mount Vernon, Federal Hill and much of the area around the harbor are right near both everyday items and entertainment that doesn't require much driving out of local residents. Catch an O's game, grab a Loose Cannon and enjoy the view.
