Walk This Way: What Is The Walkability of Your Raleigh Real Estate?

As a Raleigh Real Estate homeowner, do you prefer to walk to your destination when possible? Would you rather hop on your bike and cruise the Capital Area Greenway instead of burning fumes? Are you interested in buying a Triangle home and are curious how close it is to the hustle and bustle? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you will love the website Walkscore.com.

Lace Up Your Sneakers and Explore The Greater Triangle Area

Walkscore.com grades your city and general neighborhood on how walk-friendly it is. Raleigh is 36th in the US with 403,892 residents and a walk score of 41. That is not too bad when you think about places like New York City and San Francisco who are in the top 10!

Which Raleigh Neighborhoods Have the Highest Score?

Central Raleigh has the highest walk score of 75 with access to everyday conveniences such as entertainment, recreation and dining. Several North Raleigh neighborhoods around Falls of Neuse (Score 55) and Six Forks Rd (Score 49) have average walk scores due to their proximity to great restaurants and city parks.

Thinking about purchasing a Wake Forest, Apex or Holly Springs home? Most surrounding towns such as Wake Forest, Apex and Holly Springs all have charming downtown areas that are easily assessable to neighborhoods.

Gear Up With Bike Friendly Raleigh Real Estate

Most, if not all Raleigh neighborhoods can be bike friendly. Always be sure to practice safety when riding in non-bike marked areas and lanes. Some main roads and highways limit how much cycling you might be able to do but there are great trails that can connect you through the Capital Area Greenway. You may even find a Raleigh home that backs up to one of these trails! You can ride your bike from downtown Raleigh all the way to North Raleigh on trails alone!
