Prevention Magazine just teamed up with the American Podiatric Medical Association and Sperling’s Best Places to come up with a list of the 25 most walker-friendly cities in the United States.  While San Francisco, Boston, New York,  Philadelphia and Chicago each made the top five, Denver came in at #20.

The article pointed to the 16th Street pedestrian mall, a ‘varied and diverse’ downtown and public transportation as reasons why walkers are right at home in the Mile High City.

To develop the top 10 rankings, the study identified U.S. cities that have the highest concentration of young adults (age 20 – 24).  The stats were taken from the U.S. Census Bureau 2006 data.  Next, they looked at CBcampus.com for the number of available jobs requiring less than one year of experience in each city.  The final factor considered was the  average cost of rent for a one bedroom apartment from Apartments.com.

This ranking comes on the heels of Forbes.com‘s finding that Denver is one of the top relocation destinations in the country earlier this year.
