4. Chapel Hill, N.C.
Walk Score: 50.1
Transit Score: N/A
Remember what we just said about college towns?
By Walk Score's standards, this one admittedly isn't great for a stroll. We felt it required a mention if only for one particularly outstanding perk: The fare-free and extensive Chapel Hill Transit system. If you live in Chapel Hill or Carrboro, you'll have access to it and it gets you just about everywhere you'd need to be in this university town. Want to hit the restaurants, shops or Tar Heels games? They're yours, and for about a fraction of what you'd spend in cities just a bit up this list.
