Article Summary: 

Walk Score is a publicly accessible "walkability index" that assigns a numeric value to every location in the United States, Canada, and Australia, measuring a property's "walkability" by examining its accessibility to surrounding facilities on foot. The score considers walking distance to critical facilities, such as groceries, dining, retail, parks, institutions, and culture and entertainment, with maximum points granted for locations within a quarter-mile walking distance. The score ranges from 0 to 100, with neighborhoods scoring 70 or above considered highly walkable, while those scoring 90 or higher are classified as a walker's paradise.
