The Ten Most Walkable Cities in Colorado

In the wake of our updated list featuring Denver's most walkable neighborhoods, we recently posted about the ten least walkable cities in Colorado according to the online resource Walkscore.com.

Now, we flip to the other side of the coin.

Continue to check out the site's picks for the ten most walkable Colorado communities, all of which are in the Denver-Boulder metro area. Accompanying them are Walkscore graphics and data.

Note that some of them are designated as car-dependent or only somewhat walkable — meaning that walks there can be long ones. But we hear that walking is good for us.
