What's the "walkability" of San Juan Capistrano?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

I work in a beautiful...and I do mean beautiful, small boutique real estate office in the heart of historic San Juan Capistrano. I look out our windows and stare at the Mission San Juan Capistrano. Right around me are restaurants, stores, movie theaters, the train station, and more. Even a Starbucks...well isn't there a Starbucks just about every where you look?!?

There is something wonderful about working and living somewhere that is walking distance to everything.  In most of Orange County, it's not particularly common. But for the homes near my office in San Juan Capistrano, it is a real treat to be so close to this wonderful downtown.

There is a new site for me, though it looks to be around for a few years, that can assist buyers in 'finding a walkable neighborhood'. The site is www.walkscore.com. It will score an address from 1 to 100 on the walkablility to restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment, schools, libraries, etc. 

For the real estate industry, "what's around the neighborhood?" is a question we often hear. And this site will assist you in determining what's near and how walkable it is.

My office location rated a 97 on the Walk Score. So what does your home or office rate?
