Our walkscore is 96 (If you believe in those things...).

We are a bit doubtful of the real value of the walk score. It appears that the score looks for major businesses (chain stores and franchises) or businesses with a web presence. Thus the score doesn't seem to take in to account many small locally owned businesses.


The bottom line for us is how we decide to live. Check out our Localism page.
