In an annual nationwide ranking by Walk Score, Long Beach made the top 10 list of America’s most walkable cities. Since Walk Score measures results based on a city’s proximity to amenities, population density, block lengths, and pedestrian friendliness, it isn’t much of a surprise that the popular SoCal city made the list.
With plenty of hiking areas, clean beaches, family-friendly restaurants and coffee shops, and parks, Long Beach has a lot to offer. As an added bonus, the neighborhood’s locals are also helpful and welcoming.
Long Beach currently has a Walk Score of 69, which is up 0.9 from the previous year, and a population density of approximately 462,300 people.
