Boone, North Carolina is another good option. The home of Appalachian State University, it has a "walk score" of 67 which is one of the highest scores of any small city in the US. Boone, North Carolina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Petaluma, California is about 50 miles north of San Francisco, but it's very much a separately defined community (they were one of the first cities to institute an urban limit line, to keep development inside the city). The city population is about 60,000. The center of the city is very walkable with lots of stores, restaurants, amenities like a pedestrian bridge over the river. There are useful stores like supermarkets in the downtown as well as restaurants and bars and stuff shops. The citywide walkscore is only 55, reflecting some more suburban areas on the east side of the city, but in the central area it's much higher. It's quieter than where I'd want to live, but it's a lovely community.

Portland Maine was quite a revelation as being vibrant/walkable. I think the metro population puts it in the 100K range, if that much. But I was VERY impresssed with the place.

RIGHT.
You might think so, but check what happened when I inquired about Carfree living:

Surely, there must be people in the area, who enjoy the wonderful freedom of living a car-free life, and are willing to share some of their secrets.
=== UNQUOTE ===

I have started threads like this on C-D for four cities in NC and SC:

+ Charlotte NC : Living without a Car : Is it possible in the Charlotte area?
+ Asheville, NC : Living without a Car : Is it possible in the Asheville area?
+ Greenville SC : Living without a Car : Is it possible in the Greenville area?
+ Rock Hill+ SC : Living without a Car : Is it possible in the area?

Well, the downtowns may be walkable, but I wouldn't live in any of them without a car. But that's me.

Stillwater, Minnesota

Very alive for a town of just under 20,000, it's the oldest town in MN so it draws a lot of tourist.
