I just calculated the Walk Score for our house. It's 8 out of 100. That means you can't walk anywhere except for to and from your car. Not good.
In Marquette, where I grew up, the score is 37 out of 100. Still not really walkable, except for a few places (like my High School) (which is celebrating our 40th class reunion this weekend w/o me.)
Both our kids live in the city where you can walk to almost anything. This is why the suburbs make us so fat!
