A new survey says that Washington D.C. is one of the most walkable cities in the country.

The rankings, put out by the site Walk Score, measures "how easy it is to live a car-life lifestyle - not how pretty the area is for walking."  The survey says it calculates the distances from residences to amenities like restaurants and businesses to judge a city's walkability.

In this year's polling, Walk Score ranked D.C. the 7th most walkable out of the country's 50 largest cities.  New York City took the top spot, with San Francisco in second place. 

Out of all of Maryland cities, Walk Score dubbed Takoma Park "most walkable."

In Virginia, two community's tied for the top spot: Bailey's Crossroads and Arlington.
