To determine where the most walkable cities in the U.S. are, the travel experts at Preply analyzed the top 30 most-visited cities and used TripAdvisor to highlight the top five attractions in each one.

According to the study, Nashville is the second-most walkable city in U.S., with tourists taking approximately 33 minutes and 3,150 steps to explore Music City’s most iconic landmarks on foot.
