A website dedicated to promote walkable communities. Walk Score’s “patent-pending technology” calculates a Walk Score for any property and shows a map of what’s nearby with reviews to help you find a great neighborhood. It keys in on nearby stores, restaurants, schools, parks, etc. Walk Score measures how easy it is to live a car-lite lifestyle—not how pretty the area is for walking.
Walk Score launched in July of 2007 and over 1 million addresses were searched in the first month. Walk Score has been featured in over 500 blogs and 75 newspaper articles and radio segments.
