Raymond James Stadium ranks in bottom 10 of NFL stadiums for walkability
Like most activities in car-reliant Tampa Bay, it's difficult to walk to Raymond James Stadium.
By the numbers: The home of the Tampa Bay Bucs — and the venue for Sunday's Bucs-Atlanta Falcons game — ranks 21st in walkability out of 30 stadiums. It scored a 35, according to data from Walk Score. This Redfin company promotes walkable neighborhoods.
- Florida's two other pro football venues, Hard Rock Stadium near Miami and EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville, also ranked in the bottom 10 with scores of 35 and 28, respectively.
- The top spot, Lumen Field in Seattle, scored 87.
How it works: Walk Score measures hundreds of walking routes to nearby amenities and points are awarded based on the distance to amenities in each category.
- It also analyzes population density and road metrics such as block length and intersection density.
- A good Walk Score — any number above 69 — reflects how easy it is to walk to the location and also how easy it is to use public transportation.
What they're saying: Good walk scores can "alleviate the burden of parking during big events such as games or concerts," says Isabelle Novak, senior communications manager at Redfin.
