WalkScore.com can help you exercise the Fresh Ideas Strategy “Build Loose Social Ties.”

Type in an address and receive its Walk Score: a number between 0 and 100 that measures the location’s walkability.

Why does the score matter?  The more walkable the location, the more likely you are to make new connections and have an unexpected conversations there.

As WalkScore puts it, “ …the main reason to love walkable neighborhoods is their human energy: they’re fun, lively, memorable… not boring. They’re the kinds of places where you might bump into a long-lost friend; stumble across creative inspiration, whether for a song or a new business; or meet the love of your life. (That’s why they’re becoming among the most sought-after addresses around.)”

Attending a conference? The blog attached to the site also  includes a ranking of the Most Walkable (Large) Convention Centers.
