Check out walkscore.com and find out how 'walkable' your home is. The site tallies how far it is to many different services such as grocery, movies, coffeeshops and bookstores and scores it as 100 pts "Walkers' Paradise: Most errands can be accomplished on foot and many people get by without owning a car. " down to 0 pts "Car-Dependent (Driving Only): Virtually no neighborhood destinations within walking range. You can walk from your house to your car! "
We scored a 68, but only 9% of Huntsvillians can score higher! I don't see that they give credit for being in walking distance to dentist/doctor/insurance agent, but we have that too. We are so blessed to be so close to everything..right here down 'by Huntsville High school'.
