Walk Score

>> Thursday, August 14, 2008

Have you ever heard of it? Well now you have. Here is the website

You type in your address and it tells you the walking distance to all types of things like parks, grocery stores, libraries, and restaurants. There are so many things within a mile of my house. When you are so used to driving I think you loose perspective on how close things are to walk to. The score for our house was an 85! I was proud. Here she is, smiling on account of her great location.

I figure the more I walk the less I have to go to the gym.

What does your house score??

My walk score is 14 :( Not very good, which I kind of figured. We live in a very residential area, but all the stores/restaurants/parks are on the main streets which are a couple miles away. But, they are still close enough that it takes about 5 min to get there, which I think is pretty good.

My walk score is 54. 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 81. 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.

Things to love about Memphis..So i put in my former address in said favorite city-Chicago- for kicks, and it was an outstanding 92. It didn't even list most of the stores and everything...pretty amazing. Then I put in my Memphis address..not so good: 49, and that included the Paris Adult Entertainment on Summer...not exactly a shining star of our city. Also, I have no interest to go north of my house. Just a little funny that reminds me just how different urban settings can me! Truth is, I just miss Chicago! I'll come visit!
