Austin ranked No. 2 most-walkable city in Texas in new study

Austin took up a third of the spots on a recent study that measures a city’s walkability.

Real estate brokerage firm Redfin measured the top 10 walkable neighborhoods in Texas.

While downtown Dallas took the No. 1 spot, Austin was right behind, with downtown Austin and West Campus coming in at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. East Austin came in at No. 8.

“Austin’s downtown, however, is full of people through the evening because they have access to a huge variety of interesting places to eat, drink or shop. If you live in one of the many condos downtown, you’ll be in the center of it all,” Redfin said of downtown Austin.

The site used walkscore.com to determine the neighborhood rankings. Walkscore.com ranks cities by how easy it is to walk, ride public transportation and ride bicycles.

Other Dallas neighborhoods in the Top 10 were Oak Lawn (No. 4) and Knox Henderson (No. 6).
