Get On Your Walk Score

If you’re considering buying a home in a neighborhood in which you’re not sure about access to services, restaurants, parks and transportation, check out Walk Score.com.

Type in any address in San Francisco, and the site will rate how walkable your neighborhood is. For example, I put my home address into the system (I’m in Upper Noe Valley), and our location received a 91 out of 100. The site then lists all the grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, bookstores, etc. which surround your address. There’s also a corresponding map that lets you click on the symbols surrounding your location; you can then see the name of a nearby business, its address, and links to Yelp review. Fabulous. Don’t overlook this site, especially if you’re new to San Francisco.
