What's Your Walkscore?
Los Angeles receives a walkscore of 67, placing the city on the high end of the "somewhat walkable" scale (50-69), and close to "very walkable" (70-89).
L.A.'s 67 places the city as the ninth most walkable city overall in the U.S.
Long Beach is eighth, with a 69 score. San Francisco is the top-ranked burgh on the site, receiving 86 points. San Diego, San Jose, and Fresno all are listed as having scores in the mid-50s.
The lowest-scoring cities among the 40 listed by the site are Jacksonville, Nashville, and Charlotte.
Walkscore also measures neighborhoods. TTLA plugged in KCET's 4401 Sunset Boulevard address and the score that came up was.... 95. That qualifies the area as a "walker's paradise," according to walkscore.
