Live in a ‘walkable’ neighborhood

Matt Berger Nov 30, 2010

Choose a “walkable” neighborhood for your next home, or one that offers services and amenities that are accessible by foot. Walkable neighborhoods have health, environmental and economic benefits, and homes in walkable neighborhoods hold their value better than in car-dependent areas. Check WalkScore.com to get a walkability score for any address in the U.S., along with walkability “heat maps,” commute reports, and transit information.
