A cool new site rates the walkability of your 'hood, based on how close you are to things like parks, coffee shops, supermarkets, schools, etc. The idea is, the closer you are, the more you'll walk or ride your bike. And, as the site reminds us, not driving is good for you and good for the environment.

My Shooks Run house scored a 57 out of 100. Not exactly an A+, but not bad for Colorado Springs.
