by McEnearney on April 21, 2017

The Walkscore –This generation’s only international measure of walkability by representing how accessible the surrounding neighborhood is on foot.  Being so close to the Nation’s Capital we are surrounded by walkable neighborhoods. Everywhere from Old Town Alexandria and Arlington to Georgetown and Silver Spring rank within the “Walker’s Paradise” spectrum of this scale. These walkable neighborhoods are sought after for their convenience and the general sense of being in the middle-of-it-all. We are proud to present 10 of the most Walkable homes on the market within the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia region below:
