Walk Score lets you know how far your place of residence (or really any address) is from things that you'd want to walk to, like coffeeshops, libraries, and.... well, what else is there? It's pretty crude, so far; it's Google Maps-driven, so it doesn't take into account whether or not there are sidewalks, distance is as the crow flies, etc. and some of the information is inaccurate. (They showed a hospital near my house as a "library"--I know for a fact that that hospital doesn't even have a library of its own--and ignored the nearby library branch.)

Still, a good idea if it were better executed. I didn't realize, until I had to use public transportation recently while between cars, that there's a teeny little used bookstore tucked into a strip mall down the block from me.
