What is Your Walk Score?

leave a comment »

I’m not a big fan of some of the new suburban areas because they lack sidewalks.  I have no idea why someone would create a community that didn’t have sidewalks.  What if you wanted to visit your neighbor or walk to the grocery store?  But then I guess that is the point.  Your neighbors might not want to see you and the corner megastore is also selling gas. 

But if you are like me and you want to live in someplace where you can walk your dog on the sidewalk instead of in the street check out Walk Score.  You type in your address and it ranks your community/street address by how close you can walk to all the things you might need to go to like movie theatres, restaurants, libraries, parks and grocery store.  My area ranks a 62 out 100, although I thought it would rate a bit higher.
