Why Boston is “America’s Walking City”

Boston has a historic landmark around every corner, a population of die-hard sports fans, and even a state dessert, but what really sets Bostonians apart is their healthy outlook. With parks, attractions, and businesses so close together, Boston makes it easy to get around on foot hence its reputation as “The Walking City.” Named one of the top 10 fittest cities in the country by the American Fitness Index, and ranked #3 on the Forbes healthiest cities list, it’s obvious that Boston’s population loves to move, and with all the outdoor beauty it has to offer, getting out for some exercise doesn’t take much persuasion.

According to the United States Census Bureau, Boston had one of the highest numbers of commuters heading to the office on foot versus getting behind the wheel. Boston is relatively compact with so many hidden gems to explore that walking or biking is the recommended mode of transportation. The city’s famous historic walking tours from the iconic Freedom Trail, and postcard-worthy Beacon Hill tour, to the Road to Revolution, are essential to any Boston experience and combine fresh air and exercise with an intriguing glimpse into Boston’s rich heritage
