Trust me, you don't want to have problems getting around and be in Venice, Italy. Venice is an amazing city - the culture, the architecture, the food and the canals. But there are more than 400 bridges - many of them footbridges. You're walking to yet another lovely square and, guess what? All of a sudden there are steep steps up and down if you want to continue on your way. Good luck if you're not up to the task - and on a recent visit there, I saw many older men and women who weren't.
Today the nation will celebrate passage of the 500th piece of "complete street" legislation. This is a major milestone toward achieving safe streets for everyone, regardless of age and ability.
