A new poll asked people what’s the MAXIMUM distance they’d still consider “walking distance,” and 27% said within 30 minutes.

That was the most popular response.  21% also said within 20 minutes … and 17% said within 15 minutes.  5% are only willing to walk FIVE minutes, while 4% said anything “within an hour.”

Of course, it isn’t just WILLINGNESS to walk … and it’s also ABILITY.  So not surprisingly, people ages 65 and older were more likely to say shorter distances were their max.
