Whether it means walking to school, strolling to meet friends for dinner, or having easy access to great parks and trails, being able to step out your front door and go is a true luxury.

A poll conducted by the National Association of Realtors and the Transportation Research and Education Center at Portland State University found that, as a whole, Americans prefer walkable communities more so today than they did in the past. When purchasing a home, 79 percent of survey respondents placed importance on being within easy walking distance of places.

These homes are all steps away from great amenities in North Texas neighborhoods.
