  • How walkable is your area? Visit WalkScore.com and type in your home address to find out. The website ranks the walkability of over 2,000 U.S. neighborhood according to a number of criteria, including the existance of a discernable town center, parks and public space, pedestrian-centric design, and nearby schools and workplaces. Hopefully, your community shows up as super foot-friendly–but if not, you can take action!

  • That was very interesting! Thank you for sharing. Here is how my address rated:


    Walk Score: 42 out of 100 - Car-Dependent


    My teens walk to the mall that is really close by and we walk in our little neighborhood, but that's about it. The roads around here are highways and are just way too dangerous to cross and walk on - they have no sidewalks.

    Again, thank you for sharing the site!

  • It didn't work for my town. We have a townsquare, and literally everything you could want or need is situated in the square or very close to it. I could have a thousand errands to run in one day, and I'd be done within a few minutes because everything is so close. I live about 2 blocks away. That site scored our town 17/100 LOL. It was looking at the highway close to us and the shops in the next town over I guess! Personally, I thought we'd score damn near 100!
