The Walk Scores are out and our beloved San Francisco has come in at number two. (A no-brainer, if we do say so ourselves.)
But a pleasantly surprising plus: Oakland also made the cut at number ten.
Walk Score uses an algorithm based on walking distances from various addresses to nearby amenities like grocery stores and restaurants, and its rankings can have a significant effect on home prices. According to this year’s data, SF and Oakland are the second and tenth most walkable cities in the nation. (Thanks, Walk Score!)
We took a look at the top-ranked neighborhoods on the list and compiled a few of our favorites. Check out the slideshow below for a tour of the Bay Area, Walk Score style. Think your neighborhood should have made the cut? Let us know why in the comments section.
