I've waxed poetic many times about my own hood, and one of the reasons I've always loved Silver Lake is its walking friendly nature (we even have a local celebrity known for his daily walking habits!). Want to find out how walking friendly your neighborhood is? Check out Walk Score, which displays a score between 1-100, calculating walkability by the proximity of destinations such as grocery stores, restaurants, schools, libraries, bookstores and parks...all the places that make for a vibrant community. Who says nobody walks in LA? We scored an 83!
