Walking Along Path

Most residents think that walking around an urban area is challenging - not here in Cambridge! And Prevention Magazine agrees Cambridge was recently voted the Best US City for Walking. Cambridge is a great city for walkers. It is compact and flat, it is well served by public transportation, and its mix of housing, stores, services, work places and parks means that many destinations are within easy walking distance. Virtually every street has sidewalks, and no City street has a speed limit of more than 30 miles per hour.
