Nothing like a nice walk. It’s good for your mind and for your heart. Walking is a fantastic way to get exercise without the stress of “intense” workouts. Let’s face it for some it’s about just calm scenic cardio workouts. So a nice pleasant walk let’s you see the sights of your neighborhood while get a relaxing workout….so the best of both worlds.

According to Google, nearly 150 million adults now include walking as part of their active lifestyle. That shows just how popular “walking” has become. Once you decide that you want to “walk” the next thing is where. Many times April and I decide to just walk out the door and around our neighborhood. We have our circuit and we make our way through our neighborhood. It’s scenic and relaxing….serves the purpose. There are times we wanna get out and go somewhere to walk and enjoy new sights and sounds. That’s why I decided to put together the BEST Walking Parks list, based on ratings and reviews on Yelp.
