Walkable Neighborhoods

There is a nifty website where you can plug in an address and see how “walkable” the location is. The website is called Walk Score, and it’s tag line “Find A Walkable Place To Live”.

For example, if you plug in the address of one of our listings at Captitol West downtown, you will find a Walk Score rating of 95 out of 100, aka: “A Walker’s Paradise”.

Type in your address and see how walkable your location is! Visit the website by clicking here.

Madison: Big Enough To Be A City, Small Enough To Be A Town

Madison, Wisconsin is consistently ranked as a highly desirable place to live, work, and play. With a population of over 200,000 it’s a fairly large city (especially in the State of Wisconsin). However, many refer to Madison as “a big small town” because there are many things about Madison that give it a small town feel. Here are some examples:

Big City: Madison is home to a world class University in the University of Wisconsin as well as several other smaller colleges.

Small Town: Madison has one of the top ranked Farmers’ Markets in the country.

Big City: Madison has world class hospitals and research facilities.

Small Town: Madison has a reputation as being a very walkable and bike friendly city.

Big City: Madison is home to many world class restaurants.

Small Town: Madison still has quaint diners.

Big City: Madison has a world class performing arts center and a dynamic children’s museum.

Small Town: Madison’s famed State Street is closed to automobiles.

The list goes on an on – big city perks and small town perks. Overall, a great place to call home. If you are ready to learn more about Madison – the real estate market and otherwise, email heidi@glassslipperhomes.com!
