Think you’re in a great neighborhood? Close to everything?
Find out just how central your headquarters are by checking their Walk Score! This neat little tool calculates your home’s walkability based on its proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, theaters, schools, parks, libraries, and other amenities.
The Living Small house scored 91 out of 100 (that’s an A-, right, Dad?), which means that it is located in a “Walker’s Paradise: Most errands can be accomplished on foot and many people get by without owning a car.” That’s me! Certainly, walking beats driving in terms of environmental impact, so living in a “Walker’s Paradise” is fit ‘n’ fine by this Living Smaller.
So, how does your place fare?
