One of the draws of downtown living is easy access to all the exciting things Denver has to offer. Imagine the convenience of walking out your front door and having the whole city at your fingertips – especially in a city as walkable as Denver.


According to “Foot Traffic Ahead”, a report released by George Washington University’s Center for Real Estate and Urban Analysis, Denver is the 9th most walkable city in the country. And what’s more, the city is taking even more steps to become more walkable!


Denver aspires to increase its walkability rating by focusing on land use and transportation, and will work toward this goal through its Denveright planning process that is kicking off right now.


Denverright is a community-driven planning process that challenges Denver residents to shape how the city evolves in four key areas: land use, mobility, parks and recreational resources.


The city also is updating Blueprint Denver, the land and transportation guideline plan for growth in the city. The update of Blueprint Denver will look at land use options to support walkable places and the new Denver Moves: Pedestrian and Trails plan will identify needed infrastructure investments to make complete pedestrian connections.


New York City was ranked No. 1, followed by Washington, D.C. and Boston in the national analysis. Click through to see the full report and rankings!
