Santa Monica One of the Best Places to Walk in the Nation

When you’re a pedestrian in Santa Monica, you’re in the 12th most walkable city in the country, and the fourth most walkable in the state. At least, according to Walk Score you are.

Walk Score is a Seattle-based group that gives cities, neighborhoods and addresses grades based on how easy it is to get around and do errands without using a car.

Walk Score takes note of nearby public transit stops, as well as the proximity of grocery stores, restaurants, schools and other amenities, to formulate the grade.

Walk Score also promotes neighborhoods for the health and environmental benefits of their walkability, as well as the economic benefits of walking, rather than driving, around.
