Lancaster City’s Walkability
In a recent survey by the Urban Land Institute, 50% of people said that walkability is either the top priority—or one of the highest—in choosing where to live. Over half of Americans would like to live in a place where they do not need to use a car very often. Based on these numbers, the need for housing in walkable cities is extremely high.
What are the benefits of a walkable city such as Lancaster City? Lancaster City stretches to four square miles. The size and grid-like structure makes Lancaster City easily navigable and walkable. Whether you are grabbing a bite to eat or doing some shopping, everything in Lancaster City is within walking distance.
One of the most attractive benefits to living in an urban setting is the exercise that comes with walkability. Healthy living is encouraged by walking in order to get around.
