Interesting tidbit: if you enter your address at walkscore.com you can get a score out of 100 indicating how walkable your neighborhood is. Our current place scores a 26, which is generous since it counts a butcher shop as a grocery store and a Truss factory as the nearest shopping destination. Our DC apartment scored a 97 (described as a “Walker’s Paradise”). I think the incredible pedestrian access is the number one thing I will miss about DC. Truthfully, I don’t know that I would want to live that close to everything on a regular basis, but we definitely want to improve our walk score when we actually purchase a home.
