That depends on where in the US you're going and what kind of weather you want when you are here. If you're looking for a great place for walking & sightseeing, with great weather year-round, Austin, Texas is that place. There are a lot of places to walk around and experience, especially if live music is your thing. If you come, make sure to take an evening stroll across the bridge on Congress Avenue to see the one of the largest urban colonies of Mexican free-tailed bats in the world. Yes. I thought it was weird too, but I've been a couple of times, and it doesn't get old. I'll warn you, though, if you come to Austin between now and September be prepared for the heat. 100 degrees Fahrenheit is rather common for a high this time of year. Plus, Austin is just a 100 miles or so from another cool walk-around city - San Antonio (remember the Alamo).
Of course, there's always New York City. You could walk around Manhattan for days, weeks or probably even months and not see the same thing twice.
Washington DC is another must-see place in the US. There is so much US history there to see and experience!
But then if nature is more your thing, head out to Denver, Colorado. The downtown there is nice with a very nice pedestrian mall (15th Street, I think). Stay at the Queen Anne Bed & Breakfast (in the witch's hat room - nothing occult, just the shape of the ceiling) it is a beautiful place and the folks there are great cooks and even better hosts.
Seattle is another cool city to walk around, although I haven't spent as much time there as I have in the other cities mentioned.
I could go on, but you're better off to just pick a place and enjoy the adventure for yourself.

Philadelphia, is definitely pedestrian friendly. The historic area encompasses about a four block area. The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Constitution Center and Visitor's Center are all right here. Perfect destination for a one or two day trip. over 5 years ago
