Walk Score has released its 2011 list of the 10 Most Walkable Cities. Walk Score ranks the walkability of the 50 largest states in the United States.

The Walk Score Algorithm

Walk Score measures how easy it is to live a car-lite lifestyle—not how pretty the area is for walking.

Walk Score uses a patent-pending system to measure the walkability of an address. The Walk Score algorithm awards points based on the distance to amenities in each category. Amenities within .25 miles receive maximum points and no points are awarded for amenities further than one mile.
