I live in Matthews and got a 35. My subdivision is great but if I needed to go shopping or run errands, I'd probably need to drive.

I got a 5, Stephens Grove in Huntersville. I knew when I bought it was off the beaten path a bit. Though I can really only walk to a school or park, thats cool for me. Within 5 miles is everything else, so it's a short drive. Walking is over-rated really.

Mine is 32. Not horrible, but not ideal for sure. Our old place in Madison got an 80. Now THAT was convenient.

14 -- Prosperity Church Rd area. I find it low considering I can walk to the greenway, grocery stores, drug stores, ice cream, pizza, donuts, subs, gas stations, exercise facility, two assisted living residences, church, golf course, urgent cares, doctors office, blockbuster, haircut place, fast food (only 2: JIB and Bojangles) sidewalk on both sides of the road. 100% of the time I see people walking on this road, even in the rain.

Yeah, makes me wonder about who designed this program.

I can walk, in less than a mile to the grocery store, the dry cleaner, the drug store, the movie theater, WalMart, restaurants, post office, the bank and a lot of other retail, yet my address only produced a score of about 35 I consider where I live VERY walkable.

66 here Dilworth.

Easily walk to the light rail, gym, Harris Teeter, many shops/restaurants, Sedgefield Park, Latta Park, Freedom Park, etc...and most of it (aside from the Harris Teeter shopping center) is actually pedestrian friendly, which makes a big difference. Too many places are auto-centric in design, and while they may technically be "walkable", the absence or poor design of sidewalks, crosswalks, etc render them unwalkable. Looking forward to the narrowing of East Blvd to make the neighborhood even more walkable.

66/100 in Davidson. Doesn't mean I actually LIKE the things I can walk to. Pretty bored here in ol' Davidson and it's little quaint downtown.. not much to do.

I live in Berewick, Steele Creek, and my area scored a 6 out of 100. I still don't think that I would walk any where outside my sub division. But I do feel very safe walking around the neigbourhood and on the trails.
