The Active Towns Tour is where the initiative hits the road, quite literally!
We set out each year in the spring to discover, explore and document some of the healthiest, most physically active places we can find.
We launched the tour in May 2013 in Salt Lake City at the Congress for the New Urbanism.
Since that time we have visited 27 states, 8 countries and conducted initial observations in well over 150 communities
Our goal for 2017 is to begin production work on video profiles (mini-documentaries) of 10-15 cities that best exemplify Established, Emerging or Aspiring Active Towns.
We have a few of our profile targets set, but we’re interested in hearing from you as we round out our travel plans and production schedules.
2017 Profile Targets
~ Boulder, CO (established)
~ Austin, TX (established)
~ Seattle, WA (emerging) and a brief side trip to explore Victoria, BC
~ Memphis, TN (emerging)
~ Providence, RI (aspiring)
~ Others? Please submit your suggestions & recommendations to John at firstname.lastname@example.org
