ETA: This post is 99% stolen from Melanie’s blog

How walkable is your neighborhood? Nadine at In Blue Ink posted this link, which she got from another pal, to check the relative ease of living without a car in your neighborhood. You just plug in your address – or any other – and off it goes! Check it out here.

Our neighborhood scored a 20. What does it mean?   0 – 25 = Driving Only: Virtually no neighborhood destinations within walking range. You can walk from your house to your car!

So, we still need our cars, and for sure we do. It goes off the Google business listings, so I’m sure it’s incomplete, but for our area there just aren’t a lot of places it’s comfortable to walk to – but it also depends on your climate and fitness level, I would say.

Anyway, check it out.

    Hey! LOL You got that from MY blog, not Nadine’s! Teehee.

    Wow, your neighborhood is less walkable than mine. Way less!

    I got a 42… Car-dependent… My DH walks to work, and my son’s school and daycare are within walking distance… there’s a 7-11 right across the street from us… I COULD walk to work, but that would mean getting up an hour earlier everyday and that is SO not going to happen. LOL
