I know certain places like NYC and such have them... but wondered if anyone could name some in certain places and/or provide pictures?

Walkable communities with entertainment, shopping, dining, etc... but they aren't in the downtown area of the city, but connected by transit?

Even smaller walkable towns close to other larger cities...

Covington and Newport, KY which is across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. Main Strasse Village and most of the waterfront has plenty of activity.

South Beach is the best bet in the Miami metro. It's an easy trip across the causeway from DT Miami and is probably the most vibrant walkable community in the state.

True that.
I would add Coconut Grove, Hollywood and Coral Gables to the list as well.
