Are you looking for a new place to live? Before you commit, check out the walkability score at Walk Score. Plug an address into the website. Out pops a map of the neighborhood. It gives a score measuring how many businesses, services, schools, parks, libraries, and more are within walking distance.
The walkability of your home and place of work can have a big impact on your quality of life. Having to drive will discourage you from getting out of your house as much, increase your stress levels, and reduce your opportunity for exercise.
