I just discovered this group. I like the topic very much, but I'm disappointed with the Walkable US Cities story. I do not need guidance for Philadelphia or New York City, but I do need it for other cities, yet this story offered no information at all. For example, I would like to know where in Los Angeles we should walk. But I think you, Mr. Chibeba, would know that better than the person who all to quickly wrote the Walkable US Cities article.

It's nice to see Los Angeles makes the list.

Northwest Connecticut and the southern Berkshires, for wonderful for biking. From NYC, take Metro North, the commuter rail, to the end of the line in Wassaic. From there it's all bike: paths, rolling hills, lakes, muffins, Queen Anne's lace...

I second, third, fourth and fifth that motion, Wendy. And thanks, Paul, for creating this group!

What a great idea for a group. Can I say it? I HATE TO DRIVE. I'm all for going to places where you can walk, hike, cycle, or otherwise use your own tootsies. You really get to know a place when you move at human speed.

Worst offender I've ever been to: the Orlando/theme park hell in Central Florida.

Well, I love to avoid the hassle and stress of dealing with a rental car when I'm on vacation, so many of my trips are to cities where it's easy to wander around. I've just posted a quick write-up on Providence, RI - one of my favorite US cities - to start things off.

I've become quite the expert at avoiding driving in the United States. Remind me to tell you about walking Los Angeles from Santa Monica to downtown, and all the cool neighborhood enroute!
