I may be incorrect in assuming Walkabout Intl is in every city. But I plugged in several cities and they did come up. What I Googled to find them in my city was "Walkabout Intl." and "San Diego Walkabout."
They have free walks all over the city. Mine was through the most unique areas that I've seen so many times, but very different on foot. We met at the carousel in Balboa Park and walked for about 3.5 hours - half hour was for coffee at Seaport Village. (They break off into a slower group, and faster paced group. I chose faster and it was fine.)
I looked at the schedule, and there are different walks almost daily. And, of course, you meet folks of all ages and backgrounds and make new friends. They do the Sunday morning walk every week, but next week, I'm doing a fundraising walk on Saturday, so may wait until the following week to rejoin the group.
There are also many "Meet-Up" exercise groups in each city as well. I'm going to explore those further as well.
If you find a Walkabout chapter in your city, drop me a line. I'd be interested to know what you think. Hope you have many happy trails, whether alone or with a group.
Wishing all a fine Ides of March.
