Have you heard of WalkScore.com? This site scores cities on a scale of 1 to 100 on how walkable they are, how bikeable they are and how car dependent they are. So how walkable is Charlotte?
Charlotte has an overall walk score of 34 and a bike score of 35, though some individual neighborhoods‘ scores are higher. By comparison, New York City’s walk score is 98. Charlotte is the 49th most walkable city in the US, and it is determined to be car dependent overall.
However, as I mentioned, some neighborhoods are more walkable than others. The top 5 walkable neighborhoods in Charlotte are:

- Fourth Ward (walk score of 82; bike score of 58)
- First Ward (walk score of 79; bike score of 63)
