Philadelphia was named the 2023 Most Walkable City in the U.S. by USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. The city was selected by a panel of travel experts and won based on reader votes.
“Philadelphia is consistently ranked among the nation’s most walkable cities and we are happy to see the city again receiving national recognition for its ease of access,” said Gregg Caren, president and CEO of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This award confirms what we already knew about Philadelphia – it is an accessible destination that is easy to navigate on foot, from river to river.”
The list of 20 competing cities was determined by a panel of travel experts, looking for walkable cities that offer many hotels, restaurants and attractions, all accessible to visitors by pedestrian-friendly streets. Philadelphia was voted number one by USA Today readers and members of the public after a 28-day voting period.
