Just for kicks I entered my address. Now most of you probably already know that I live in a quite rural setting. On one side, we have a rural church. Across the road is the ‘community’ center and the church cemetery. On the other side (and the back) are fields that alternate between soybeans and corn. Now just down the road on the other side of what passes as a park here, is a chicken farm.
I see you sitting there looking at your computer screen contemplating what in the world the ‘Walk Score’ website and a chicken farm next to my house have to do with each other. The ‘Walk Score’ website lists conveniently located business that are within walking distance of your home. My house got an 8 out of 100 score.
All distances listed are measured in a straight line… they are not calculated using roadways.
