Enter an address, find out how walkable it is
Before heading out to lunch today, we're looking up our office address on a newly launched site, Walk Score to see if there's anywhere nearby to eat that we've missed. Walk Score shows you a map of what's nearby and calculates a Walk Score for any property, in our case the Linux Journal office:
Our office gets a Walk Score of 72 -- considering we're in the very walkable city of Houston, Texas, ahem, I'll be happy with that score.
At least we don't work at Microsoft. They have a Walk Score of only 32.
And no, we didn't find any new restaurants. But we did manage to kill the last 15 minutes playing with this new site.
