Another cool find from Ode Magazine, Walk Score analyzes how walkable your neighborhood is by measuring distances to nearby amenities. Its not exactly accurate however, since it doesn't take into consideration things like sidewalks and street widths. (Which the site fully admits.)
My neighborhood got a sad 45 out of 100, while my parents' beach house in Ocean City, MD scored only slightly higher with a 52 out of 100. Yet, I know from experience that Ocean City is much more walkable than where I live now. (Considering that Ocean City actually has things like sidewalks.)
Still, its a pretty cool little tool.
