US -- good public transportation vs. need-a-car

Jump to last reply

Am planning future US trip possibilities, and it's clear that some destination cities are ones you can visit comfortably and see the sights solely with walking and public transportation while in others you absolutely need a car. I've traveled to several cities and done research on some others and it looks like this is how they might come out:

Walking/public transport sufficient: Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco/Oakland, New Orleans, Seattle, Portland (OR), Salt Lake City, Washington (DC), Atlantic City, Providence

Has some public transportation and walking friendliness, but a car is very useful: Cincinnati, Las Vegas, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Tampa, Honolulu, Pittsburgh, Portland (ME)

Need a car: Miami, Los Angeles, Phoenix, St. Petersburg (FL), St. Louis, Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, Sarasota

Don't know/can't tell: Savannah, Charleston (SC), Baltimore, Annapolis, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Key West, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Kansas City, San Antonio, San Diego, Austin

Would very much like some feedback on the correctness of my observations, as well as info on the cities I'm not sure of. Am leaning towards those destinations where a car is not needed.
