In the market for a new house? Wouldn't you love to live in a walkable neighborhood?
Enter an address at Walk Score, and they will calculate the walkability of that neighborhood based on the proximity to stores, restaurants, schools, and parks on a scale of 0 to 100 (0 being Driving Only and 100 being a Walkers' Paradise).
Even if you're not planning a move, it's fun to try out your own address in Walk Score to test the walkability of your neighborhood. You might discover that you're closer to more stores and restaurants than you think. Maybe it will convince you to walk more!
Our current house gets a Walk Score of 72 out of 100: Very Walkable.
How does your house score?
