What’s your Walk Score?


Another hat tip to Cory at Madville Times for a fun post about a website that lets you calculate the walk-ability of your neighborhood.

Just visit Walk Score’s site and punch in your address. Mine was only 3 points behind San Francisco, a top-rated walking city! Now if those big strapping guys over at the Sigma Nu house would shovel a bit more consistently in the winter….

  1. Wow, our house scored 60 points below your neighborhood (our old apt across from your house). 83! We did walk a lot more when we lived over there….

    My walk score is 35. That’s not so bad. This service can be rather useful especially for those who are going to buy a house or just want to estimate their
    present location. 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. Drive Score calculates your score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. The greater the number of businesses nearby the higher the drive score.
