City of Alexandria Recognized as One of the Best Walking Cities in America

The City of Alexandria was recently recognized by Prevention magazine and the American Podiatric Medical Association as one of the top 100 Walking Cities in America. Alexandria ranked #21 overall in a survey of 500 cities. For the first time this year, the survey also chose a Best Walking City in each state, and Alexandria was selected as the Best Walking City in Virginia. 

The American Podiatric Medical Association and Prevention magazine annually team up to measure the walkability of America’s cities. This year, cities were evaluated on 14 criteria, including the percentage of adults who walk to work, number of parks per square mile, use of mass transit, and percentage of adults who walk for fitness.

“We are pleased that Alexandria has been recognized as one of the best walking cities in America,” stated Mayor William D. Euille. “Our City prides itself on providing plentiful opportunities for residents and visitors to walk to any destination—whether it is a historic site, a neighborhood park, or their workplace.”
