How Far Is It? Need Help.

Doc: For some reason, some of my listeners think I’m a road atlas or something because I have been receiving phone calls during my show asking me how far it is from one place to another. I don’t know why these listeners call me. Maybe they don’t have access to the Internet, don’t know how to find the information, or, well, I don’t know why they call me.

Anyway, I know there are several websites to use for this information, but I was wondering if you know of something that’s really easy to use. Thanks in advance. - Anonymous


Anon: Sounds like you’re becoming a source for information for some of your listeners. That’s good. On to your answer . . .

I’m sure there are dozens of websites available for the information, but here are two suggestions:

Go to Google, Bing, Wolfram Alpha, or one of the other search engines, and type in, for example, distance Seattle Wa to Miami Fl. It’s quick and easy. In some cases, you may want to add the word “driving” to the search (driving distance . . .).

The second is a website called Distances Online. Just type in the From and To locations and you’ll get a lot of information very quickly . . . click here.

I hope those two suggestions help.
