This is what I saw when I took my Real Simple magazine out of my mail box the other day.
Yes, we knew that we are on the right track. The article echoed some of the posts that we have written about the health benefits of walking, advice on gear and clothing, as well as ideas on different types of walks to take.
One gem in the article was a link to “walking on the web.” Using Walk Score’s rankings of the 10 most walkable cities in the U.S., Real Simple’s fitness pros highlight two walks, with maps, for each city. We also did a post on how walkable is your city. Take a look. If you live or travel to any one of these cities, this is a great resource. You can listen to their exclusive Spotify playlists for each city to keep you going. Of course it will be far more interesting if you take your camera and snap shots along the way.
In case you don’t want to run out and buy an issue, here are the ten most walkable cities in the U.S.: New York City, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Washington D.C., Seattle (Yeah!), Oakland, and Baltimore.
Both are great places for walking and for taking photos. The Seattle waterfront and the Sculpture Park are camera ready.
Myrtle Edwards Park flows along the waterfront connecting to two other parks giving you options for how long you want to walk.
Gasworks Park is on the north end of Lake Union and gives some spectacular views of downtown Seattle.
As well as terrific photo shots of the houseboats that line Lake Union. In fact Seattle’s houseboat population is the largest east of the Orient, according to See Seattle Firsts.
Regardless of where you live, grab your camera and join the growing number of people who love walking. The great photos you capture along the way are an added benefit.
