I should get paid for giving plugs such as this one. But I found a really cool website on Friday (read: the intern in my office browses the internet in search of cool stuff all day due to the fact that we never give her anything substantive to do and forwarded this to me...on Friday). The site scores your place on residence based on your ability to reach eateries and other places of interest on foot.
See what your score is - I got a 97 for my current place of residence in Sacramento. My future place of residence in Sunnyvale only scored a 66. Woe is me.
Unfortunately, the calculation for Sacramento didn't take into account the fact that I live in a downtown area riddled with vagabonds and hoodlums.
