North Bethesda is Walkable, But do Residents Want to Walk? — A local blogger takes on recent high ratings of North Bethesda and White Flint as a “walkable” community, the popular new buzz term for not needing the use of a car in daily shopping, commuting and other activities. But is White Flint pleasant to walk and could that encourage some people right back to their cars? [North Flintville]
