Walkscore.com is an easy to use, fun, and informative web site that will allow you to check out the walkability of Portland neighborhoods. Type in your address, or an address you are considering living at, and Walkscore will magically give you a score on walkability, transit availability, and bike-ability. The rating is based on a perfect score of 100. The walk score looks at the walkability of:
- dining and drinking spots
- culture/entertainment venues
In addition, the web site will provide you with a map of where these destinations are located and how far they are from you. It’s very handy. Use this web site when you’re traveling, too; it provides a quick snapshot of the area. Have fun exploring your neighborhood!
