OK, So Maybe Lubbock Is Good for Walking
All right. So Lubbock is barely within 500 miles of one of the nation's top outdoors places to live.
Today CNN.com has a story on "Metropolitan areas ranked for walkability."
Maybe Lubbock is on that list. I like to walk, after all.
No such luck. I've plotted the top 15 here. The closest is Denver, a short 546 mile drive.
Young professionals ... are driving a national trend toward more walkable communities, says the author of a report to be released Tuesday by the Brookings Institution.Don't get me wrong. I'm not looking for reasons to besmirch the Hub City. But CNN keeps posting these stories, and I am a curious person. And sadly, Lubbock is seldom on the list. Unless the list is of dry counties.
