What urban adventure should I look into?

I have been reading up on walking around Los Angeles as an "urban thru-hike
." What urban thru-hike/scavenger hunt would you recommend for your city or a city you've visited?

The gist of LA's Inman 300 is that hikers visit each of ~300 public staircases in the city. That kind of adventure appeals to me and I would like to think of other examples. Things to visit that are somewhat unique or special about a particular city. Not, for example, every bar in Cleveland, since I could visit lots of bars in any city. But I can't visit 300 public staircases in just any city, ya know?
So, what other cities have easily quantifiable, somewhat unique public features that I could walk to? And what are those features?
