Just put in your street and city, share the results if you would be so kind. I live in Wesley Chapel and scored a 0 out of 100! Not surprising.

Walk score 32, but I think its very walkable. I could walk to the Arboretum in 20 minutes and neighborhood is loaded with sidewalks.

Some of us talked about this on another thread the other day. Charlotte may not be walkable like NYC or Chicago - but there are definitely neighborhoods here where you can walk to almost everything you need. I know, because I live in one

Lots of people are too lazy to walk 20 minutes someplace tho! Lol. I think they are basing it on things that are REALLY close by.

I know, that's why I though the score thing would be fun. My old neighborhood (old, old, b4 marriage) in Cleveland scored in the 90s and it was a 'burb so not only big cities score well

Mine is 69 previously it was 72. Not sure why it went down. If anything it should go up because there are more businesses nearby.

My neighborhood got 18. I checked my old NJ address and it got a 66. I can easily walk around my subdivision since it has sidewalks, so at least I can get some exercise, but leaving it to walk on 75 with no sidewalks would be another story entirely!
