99 Problems and The Sudbury Walking Score Isn’t One

Boston is a special city with so much to offer, from its rich history and grand parks all the way to its great restaurants and skyscraper views. One thing in particular that makes The Sudbury so special is its booming walking score, a near perfect ranking of 99. With Boston voted as the 3rd most walkable large city in America, it’s no wonder you can find The Sudbury residents walking throughout the city to get where they’re going. 

In Bulfinch Crossing, the neighborhood where The Sudbury’s Downtown Boston apartments call home, Bostonians can get almost anywhere by foot. Whether you want to walk to work, go antiquing on Charles Street, or crave a cannoli from Hanover Street, by foot is by far the fastest, easiest way to get there.

Start your stopwatch; here are four great locations in Boston you can get to by foot from The Sudbury (without breaking a sweat!). 


1. Boston Public Garden, 10 minutes:

See the seasons change at Boston Public Garden, one of the oldest and most historical parks in Boston. Enjoy the ever changing flowers and the picnic-perfect parks, ideal for an outdoor social distancing picnic. All this blossoming magic is a stone’s throw away from The Sudbury.

Not in the mood for walking? On top of its great walking score, Boston is home to America’s first subway system. The city’s connectivity is unmatched with a transit score of 100. City dwellers can hop on any of the four nearby MBTA subway lines and get anywhere in and around Boston, including access to the MBTA Commuter Rail. Hop on the Blue line and go to Orient Heights Beach in East Boston, or get a taste of The Ivy League and visit Harvard Square in Cambridge. 

If you want to get around on wheels, reaching your destination couldn’t be easier. Access major interstates 93 North & South with quick connections to the Massachusetts Turnpike and Storrow Drive, perfect for weekend getaways or Greater Boston day trips. You’ll be hitting the New Hampshire slopes or spreading out on a Cape Cod beach in no time! For trips that extend beyond Boston’s borders, Logan Airport is a 5-minute drive from The Sudbury’s doors.
