Walkability

How walkable is your neighborhood? If you go to walkscore.com you can find out! It uses google maps and gives your home a score based on how many things are within walking distance.

Where we live now is a 92 (out of 100), which means it's a Walker's Paradise. When we move (assuming we actually do) we'll be at 89, still not too shabby. Now I have numerical proof that we don't need a car and we're not the only ones that think so.

My walk score is 35. That’s not so bad I should say. This service can be rather useful especially for those who are going to buy a house or just want to estimate their present location. So as it turned out my neighborhood is quite walk able. I have also tried one more service at http://drivescore.fizber.com/ It is called Drive Score. With the help of it you can see how close establishments are by car. My result is 50.
