Check out the site Walk Score to answer the question “How walkable [bikeable] is your house?”
Put in your address and the site will show all the grocery stores, restaurants, bars, movie theaters, coffee shops, parks, schools, libraries, book stores, gyms, drug stores, hardware stores and clothing/music stores within a 30 miles radius of your house and where they are located. Also, it will score your house from 1 to 100 on it’s walkability.

Although the site is called Walk Score, it obviously can be used to see everything within biking distance of your house as well. Other uses could be to find the closest places to your work or a town when you go on vacation.
Where do you live and what’s your score?
