Along a river/lake walk. Park trails. There is a trail walk at Beacon Rock in Eastern WA. I was "huffing & puffing" it up the trail when this elderly lady (85+) and her daughter started down the trail. All of a sudden I knew I would make it up that trail IF I had to crawl partway! It still "floors" me to think of the energy and health this lady had! (And, unlike me, she wasn't even out of breath at all!!)
If the weather's bad, I will go to a mall or warehouse-type store to walk.

If I don't want to drive anywhere I walk in the neighborhood. If It's dark I stay on the Cul-de Sac ( it's .25 mile loop).
I am so blessed to have atleast 3 walking tracks really close.
At my inlaws there is a cemetary across the street I like to walk .

I believe I will try to visit walking tracks in new places when we travel!

There was a old historical cemetery by my old house that was full of hills that I loved to walk or jog, depending on my mood. Now that I've moved I haven't found anywhere that I enjoy walking.

I love hiking trails. Being outside keeps my mind occupied with things other than that darn timer on the treadmill.

In my house with Leslie Sansone videos! But I have moved to a bigger town with more walking trails so when it gets warmer I'm looking forward to exploring some of those places.

I love walking around the city where I live. It's a medieval city with hundreds of tiny old shops selling everything you can think of. We even have a shop that sells only rope, and another that sells only sieves. There's always so much to see and smell (there are dozens of coffee grinder places and sweet shops) that I never notice time passing as I walk. Some of the buildings date back to the 10th century, it's easy to feel like I'm in another world. And the streets are designated for pedestrians, not cars, so it's easy and safe.

I have a standard 3.5 mile circle out the front door and around a lake and golf course. Variety would be nice, but driving someplace to walk takes more time.

I live in a rural village, and I simply love to walk from my village into the neighbouring villages.

There are various networks of footpaths leading in all directions across fields and heading into the neighbouring villages, and it's also quite hilly so my walks actually end up being more like hikes!

However, for jogging I tend to stick to a circular route that takes me out of my village, into the next one, and back round in a loop back into my village but at the opposite end from where I left.

It's all pretty much away from roads, so lovely and quiet - just right to hear the birds and other sounds of the countryside that are so often drowned out by the ever-present hum of traffic.

The Beach with my dogs and my baby on my back. Walking in the soft sand with a 20lb kiddo hanging on you is a great work out! We have a lot of great hiking trails here to CA North Coast

Around the lake near my house, in the park around it and in Old Amsterdam and other cities when traveling.

Where do you like to walk?

My favorite places are outside on the river walk or park trails. There are so many wonderful distractions.
