If your clients are looking for a U.S. city that can be seen and enjoyed by taking a gentle stroll, there is no better suggestion than Philadelphia.

For the second consecutive year, the city has been voted the ‘Most Walkable City To Visit’ in the 2024 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards contest.

Philadelphia was nominated for its walkability by a panel of experts, including editors from USA TODAY and 10best.com, who selected 20 cities with a variety of activities, dining options and accommodations, all linked by pedestrian-friendly streets. The public then voted Philadelphia the No. 1 city on the list of the 10 most walkable cities to visit in the U.S.

In ‘Philly’ visitors can discover the city’s history, culture, cuisines and many hidden gems on foot, and enjoy greater engagement with local communities. They can also take advantage of self-guided walking tours and tour experiences spanning a wide range of interests.

The city’s line-up of eclectic neighbourhoods includes sights that range from public art installations and premier cultural institutions to vibrant green spaces and historic landmarks.

Centre City Downtown Philadelphia’s city centre is an easy-to-navigate corridor spanning 26 blocks from the Delaware River on the east to the Schuylkill River on the west. Only 2.4 miles separate Penn’s Landing and the Schuylkill River Trail, with the ability to walk from one end of Centre City to the other in less than an hour.

“This title underscores our city of neighbourhoods, offering a pedestrian-friendly environment where visitors can effortlessly experience the charm, culture, and convenience that define Philadelphia,” said Gregg Caren, President and CEO of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau.

“Our walkable streets connect international travellers and convention attendees alike to an array of hotels, restaurants, and attractions, making Philadelphia a standout destination for visitors seeking an engaging and accessible travel experience.”
