Stumbled upon this site tonight… Walkscore.

Type in your address, or a potential address, and it rates how "walkable" your neighborhood is (or, how car-independent is it).  Jen and I have been talking some lately about how car dependent we are.   It would be great to live somewhere that I didn’t have to jump in the car to go EVERYWHERE.  That is one of the big draws of urban living…

My home address in Plainfield scored a 45… that’s like an F-, right?

  1. Interesting. I also scored a 45. And its pretty funny some of the places they point out we can walk too. Some are not necessarily desirable. But hey–I can walk to them if I want!
