Walk Score: 79.2
Transit Score: 74
When your city's commerce is built on horse-drawn wagons carrying goods from port, it doesn't pay to spread things out. Neighborhoods such as Back Bay, Beacon Hill, the South End and Fenway don't succeed just because they're teeming with Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority trains, but because they don't take a whole lot of time to navigate and tend to have stuff like groceries, restaurants, shops and bars in close proximity. Even more far-flung neighborhoods such as Jamaica Plain and South Boston have multiple transit options while still keeping residents within striking distance of a Red Sox game, the theater district and summer waterfront strolls along Boston Harbor and the Charles River.
