Note: I did a search and there is a thread that talks about this, but it is 4 years old, some of the people in it are no longer around and I'd rather start fresh than somebody quoting an old post asking a question they may not get an answer to.
Been toying with the idea of possibly moving and I stumbled upon the Walk Score site once again. For shins and grins, I plugged my current address in and got a score of 22- almost all errands require a car. I call BS on that.
It has been my experience that most errands don't require a car- post office, dentist, medical doctor, movie rental, library, Walgreens, ACE Hardware, restaurants... pretty much everything but the bowling alley, movie theater, and skating rink I've either walked to or from- if not there and back.
I'm also questioning their little "Time Travel" interactive map. It takes your location and then gives you a radius of how much ground you can cover at any given time by whatever mode of transport. I'm not the fastest walker (average 3.2 mph), but I know I can cover a greater distance than what their tool suggests.
It would be interesting to see if y'all agree with your own Walk Scores- Find Apartments for Rent and Rentals - Get Your Walk Score
