It will really not be fair when you can walk everywhere in town but can not walk in the desert, right? Fortunately, you have this mod – Walk to the Desert. This is the expansion mod for Stardew Valley that helps you can walk anywhere even in the desert.

Besides that, there have some reasons that make people choose the bus such as the road being so long, danger from monsters. It will make you feel want to take a sword or run fast
