6 of the Most Scenic City Walks in America
With the weather (finally) turning its compass toward spring, it only makes sense to get out and enjoy the weather — and what better way to do that than through walking? Read on as we break down some of the country’s best city walks.
1. The High Line, New York City
Though Central Park gets many of the accolades and much of the attention as key green space in Manhattan, it’s the High Line that has us really excited — where else can you walk somewhat above a city, after all? Located on Manhattan’s West Side, this public park, built on a historic freight rail line, runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues. A one-mile linear park, the High Line also boasts impressive outdoor exhibitions and murals installed throughout the park. Another impressive feature is the park’s solid lineup of award-winning food vendors: From tacos to barbecue and from gelato to artisanal frozen treats, the High Line does not disappoint.
