Now that the weather has fully changed, it’s time to get out and explore your neighborhood. I mean park the car and go and discover things. Walk around.
If you think you know your ‘hood, check out Walk Score dot com, a website that scores your address based on the number of things that are easily walkable from where you live.
“Walking distance” is farther than you think.. 20 minutes counts as the distance, and the website offers up parks, restaurants, schools, stores and more that are just around the corner, or you might have driven to in the past.
It’s already helped me realize I could walk more than I do, and the site with it’s instant overlay of locations on the map would be a great use when trying to pick a hotel for a vacation. Type in the address and you’ll instantly find out all the attractions just a few steps from the front door.
