What’s your house’s Walk Score?

August 3, 2007
How walkable is your place (or that dream house you’ve been thinking of)?

When Sara and I look at getting a place, not needing a car for every little errand will be high on my list of wants.

Walk Score helps people find walkable places to live. Walk Score calculates the walkability of an address by locating nearby stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc. Check out how Walk Score doesn’t work.

Your Walk Score is a number between 0 and 100. The walkability of an address depends on how far you are comfortable walking—after all, everything is within walking distance if you have the time. Here are general guidelines for interpreting your score:

  • 90 – 100 = Walkers’ Paradise: Most errands can be accomplished on foot and many people get by without owning a car.
  • 70 – 90 = Very Walkable:
    50 – 70 = Some Walkable Locations:
    25 – 50 = Not Walkable:
    0 – 25 = Driving Only:
