What's your walk score?

Here's a cool website to check out: www.walkscore.com.  The site gives a score to properties in the USA based on how close amentities are for walking.  If you live in a downtown metropolitan area then your score will be quite high.  If you live in a suburb or rural area then your score will be much lower.  The site is also great for home buyers that are looking at a house in an unfamiliar area to them.

Walkscore provides tons of information about the closest restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, bars, schools, parks, shopping, banks, entertainment and more.  A great way to really learn a neighborhood in a short period of time.  A fun site to spend a few minutes if you are interested in buying or just wanting to look up your own house?  What is your walkscore?  Mine was 40. I live in a suburb  :)
