Here's a quick, easy way to calculate your neighborhood and your home's "walk score". Your walk score is how "walkable" your location is; that is, how quickly and easily you can walk to everyday services such as drug stores, grocery, library, restaurants, dry cleaners, etc.
Visit WalkScore.com to calculate your Knoxville home's walkability index.

We moved to a new home last year and I was delighted to find our new home's walkability was a 66 out of a possible 100 while our former residence only scored an 8. No wonder we used to have to drive so much.
