Walk Score

Green is the most sustainable color. As energy costs increase and resources are depleted, more and more people are recognizing the benefits of energy conservation, clean air and healthy living. I have talked with several buyers lately who have told me they want a home that's close to shopping, restaurants, services and entertainment. The green word for this type of location is "walkable".

I have discovered a fabulous web site where you can type in an address, and get its "walkability score". You will get a map showing all the amenities close to the address, and a ranking from 0 to 100 indicating the ease of living at that address without a car.

Try it. It's lots of fun.
