Apartments with best walking distance in California

by Daniel E. Fava

When searching for a home in California, one that is nearby the grocery store, Movie Theater, school district, entertainment, is ideal for everyone. Being able to walk to and do all your daily errands without a car is something most of us dream of. If you’re moving towards the San Francisco area and looking for a place with the best walking distance to nearby places, I have complied a list of properties that all have a walking score of 90 or higher. In case you don’t know what walkscore is; “Walk Score measures the walk ability of any address using a patented system. For each address, Walk Score analyzes hundreds of walking routes to nearby amenities. Points are awarded based on the distance to amenities in each category. Amenities within a 5 minute walk (.25 miles) are given maximum points. A decay function is used to give points to more distant amenities, with no points given after a 30 minute walk.” Walk Score also measures pedestrian friendliness by analyzing population density and road metrics such as block length and intersection density.  In addition, Walk Score measures the walk ability of any address based on the distance to nearby places and pedestrian friendliness. With that being said, lets look down the list of the top apartments with the best walking distance in San Francisco.
