This seems to be difficult with the amount of people that simply don't like to move! I am looking for a somewhat urban city that has a warmer climate but lots of good walking Now I can't afford a multi million dollar price tag either or that would make things much simpler I need a dog friendly city as well. Any suggestions

Parts of the Los Angeles area fit that description. The greater Pasadena area (San Gabriel Valley), comes to mind; it isn't cheap, but there are plenty of non "multi million dollar" options, too.

I also agree with the Savannah suggestion.

South pasadena and the like, maybe, but most of the San Gabriel Valley is not built for walking. I grew up there, and a lot of the nice places to walk around usually require some other kind of transportation to get to in the first place.

Southern California is so blessed with fairly even terrain, and fantastic weather--and we all up and decide that all that weather and even terrain should go to the cars. Gah, what a waste.

For the money Long Beach (completely biased) The weather has been nearly perfect the past 3 weeks except for 1 cloudy/dullish day and the amount of walking you can do is unbearable.

True enough. I used to live in South Pasadena, which is a FABULOUS city for walking. Parts of Pasadena are also pretty and good for both walking to actual stores as well as just for fun. The weather is usually wonderful, the houses are beautiful, there are parrots in the trees, and it's just an overall very attractive place. I'll change my suggestion to focus more on South Pasadena and some other scattered Pasadena-area spots. There are other areas of the SGV that have busy and ugly streets and are not particularly pleasant for pedestrians. But South Pasadena would be a great option!
