Miami just ranked 8, with a score of 72.5, in a walkability scoring of the 50 largest cities in the U.S. Having moved from San Francisco, ranked 2 with a walkability score of 84.9, I decided to check out my home’s walk score. I live in Pinecrest, a suburb, so I wasn’t too surprised to find out that my walk score was pretty dismal at 22. Not all areas of Pinecrest would score that low. If your home is in the western portion of Pinecrest, which is a lot closer to shops and U.S. 1, your home would score much higher.
Recent studies throughout the country have shown that more people want to give up commuting, and the accompanying high gas bills, and live in more walker friendly neighborhoods. So, what is your home’s walk score?
