Walk Score

I just found a website called Walk Score via Apartment Therapy. It is so cool. You type in an address and see all the amenities near and get a walkable score. Our place scored an 86 out of 100. While this isn’t terribly helpful now that we have lived here for a year and a half, I can see how it would be extremely helpful when checking out new neighborhoods and once you move finding where to find the hardware store.

  1. I believe that walk score is cool, but nowadays more and more people prefer to drive cars. Homes are often located in an area where some establishments are easier to get to by car than on foot. I’ve recently found a type of service on drivescore.fizber.com which is called Drive Score. It shows a map of what establishments are in your neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. It doesn’t mean that drive score is better than walk score – they are equal and both necessary in the modern world!
