These Streets Are Made for Walkin'

There's nothing like a walk along the lakefront on a nice spring day.   Hopefully, a nice spring day will show up soon, and we'll all be able to enjoy Chicago's designation as one of the top walking cities in the country.

Chicago made the top 5 best walking cities in a survey by the Prevention magazine.

The magazine evaluated urban areas on things like population density, mass transit, crime rates, and parks. They also worked with a national podiatrist group and Sperling's Best Places.

Chicago didn't win out in any of the magazine's other categories, like best nature walks (San Francisco), best fitness walks (Boston) or safest (Rochester, NY).

The top five walking cities were:

  1. San Francisco
  2. Boston
  3. New York City
  4. Philadelphia
  5. Chicago
