Walk Scores!

Here's a handy dandy little website called Walk Score. Basically, you enter your address and it gives you a score from 1-100 based on the amount of places in your area that are "walking distance." I put walking distance in quotations because when I entered mine, it suggested a few places that, while they might be somewhat in the walking distance range, they would be incredibly long walks in very unfortunate weather (living in Miami is always without perks when it comes to the weather... except maybe in January.) However, it lists places that you might not even know you have in your neighborhood (or didn't realize were of walking distance.) It can also help you in choosing a future home in the case that you have no car, or prefer to walk/bike to the places of interest in your area!

PS. My neighborhood got a 66! Not sure if that's a good thing?
