We drive way too much sometimes, especially when we can walk to lots of shopping, eating and other shopping places within a mile of where we live or work.
WHY WALK, NOT DRIVE BENEFITS Save gas, money and the stress of traffic and parking, plus, get some (possibly well-needed) exercise and stress relief by being outdoors and maybe walking with friends or family, deepening your relationships too! Plus, you may find out about shops and things on the way and back you never took the time to stop and explore!
Website developer Kathryn Benedicto decided to pursue One-Mile Radius Living — finding walkable spots in her ‘hood to get the same things she was driving long distances to get. Kathryn says she got her idea after realizing that her driving habits kept her thinking like a car commuter even when she wasn’t commuting!
