  • Super-Walkable Logan Circle

    Map showing walking score of 97This cool little walkability tool will provide you with a score for how walkable your particular home is. Or any address, for that matter.

    Hedda and I score a whopping 97 out of 100! Clearly, Logan Circle is one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the country.

    I am proud to say that there has been a trend of increasing walk scores throughout my life (excluding the tumultuous college years).

    • House Where I Grew Up – 40/100
    • First Apartment in Chicago – 92/100
    • Second Apartment in Chicago – 92/100
    • Apartment in Arlington – 94/100
    • Condo in Washington, DC – 97/100

    Living in walkable neighborhoods is a huge advantage in so many ways. Not only do you not need a car (we sold both of ours over three years ago), but the intimacy and connection with your neighbors is unmatched. We have friends up and down the street, many of whom we see on even a regular trip to the grocery store. It’s an intensely social experience.

    How walkable is your home?

    Tip of the hat to Blaster 151, for the discovery.

    • Our house scored an 8!

      Both of my apartments scored a 62

      So my trend shows me sinking like a rock.

      I wonder if I can move somewhere that is a 2?

    • My address rates a sad 54. However, I did discover there is an imaginary Pizza Hut a block from my house. I look forward to going there soon for imaginary pizza.

    • We get a 77. It’s missing a /lot/ of restaurants, and it even included some stuff in Georgetown, which is a healthy walk to say the least. Time to tell my local business owners to update (or create) their Google info!

    • Hey! Thanks for dropping it. It was good to hear from you. That’s the highest walkability score that I’ve ever seen. I’m jealous!

    • This is kind of cool…
      Where I used to live in naperville: 85
      Where I lived this summer: 0

      Movin’ on up:)
