DC Walk Scores

Posted by Mark Washburn on Sunday, November 29th, 2009 at 10:48am.

Walking is the essence of the DC urban lifestyle.  It doesn't matter if you are a K Street attorney with a pair of cordovan Allen-Edmonds oxfords or a lobbyist adorned in a pair of Jimmy Choo pumps and a secret pair of New Balance running shoes stashed away for the daily commute.........walking around the District is part of your daily routine.

Walk Score is a company that has graded properties and neighborhoods across the country for their walkability.  Washington, DC comes in very high at #7 on the national ranking of major cities only trailing the likes of San Francisco, New York, Boston and Chicago.  Walk Score uses a 100 point grading system and some of the District's neighborhoods have extremely high walkability rankings:

  1. Dupont Circle 99
  2. Logan Circle 98
  3. Downtown 97
  4. U Street Corridor 97
  5. Foggy Bottom 95
  6. Mount Vernon Square 95
  7. Adams Morgan 93
  8. Kalorama 92
  9. Friendship Heights 90
  10. Georgetown 90

Any neighborhood with a ranking in the 90s is categorized as a walkers paradise - Most errands can be accomplished on foot and many people get by without owning a car.  Walk Score utilizes a complex algorithm to measure distance from an address to thirteen amenities including: grocery store, restaurants, bars, parks, coffee shop and other daily necessities.

The DC Condo Boutique offers a Walk Score rating for every property listed for sale in the District.  To view the Walk Score of a listing, simply click on the black Walk Score tab located near the top of the listing just under the address.
