Walk Score

For those that travel it's real easy to get real fat real quick on the road. So to combat that you try to exercise but there's only so much "Fox News" you can watch while you are on a treadmill. Enter "Walk Score" input your hotels address and "Walk Score" gives you all the local attractions and the approximate distance to each. Hey if you gotta walk you might as well be walking towards the local BBQ joint or micro-brewery.

I believe that walk score is cool, but nowadays more and more people prefer to drive cars. Homes are often located in an area where some establishments are easier to get to by car than on foot. I've recently found a type of service on drivescore.fizber.com which is called Drive Score. It shows a map of what establishments are in your neighborhood and calculates a Drive Score based on the number of places within a convenient driving distance. It doesn’t mean that drive score is better than walk score – they are equal and both necessary in the modern world!
