According to the report, if current development trends hold, the most-walkable cities will be, in order: Boston, Washington D.C., New York, Miami and Atlanta. The report&nbsp;examined&nbsp;<span style="color: #444444;">factors such as the amount of retail and office space that is friendly to visitors traveling on foot.</span></span></p> <p>The report's executive summary states: "Walkable urban development is characterized by much higher density and a mix of diverse real estate types, connected to surrounding areas via multiple transportation options, such as bus and rail, bike routes, and motor vehicles. For those living or visiting a walkable urban place, everyday destinations, such as home, work, school, stores, and restaurants, are within walking distance."</p> <p>To learn more about Boston's
