5. Philadelphia
Walk Score: 74.1
Transit Score: 68

The city's most walkable neighborhoods in Center City, the Old City and along the riverfront near Penn's Landing are pleasant enough, but the combination of easy transit access and building amenities such as markets, shops, bars and restaurants are bringing folks into Fishtown, Northern Liberties and South Philadelphia. Except for the extreme northeast, southwest and northwest corners of the city, about 95% of the city is accessible easily by means other than a car. Transit ridership still has a way to go before it catches up to other cities along the Northeast Corridor, but retirees are joining young newcomers in places including Manayunk and Kensington to take advantage of a city where the options are growing and the options for getting there are ample.
