Distance between cities

January 2, 2012 -- Submitted by Allen Knor, a parent from Mountain View, CA, who is affiliated with the site.

Distance between cities is a free tool that allows kids to discover how far away are cities from each other within the US. It also gives information about how long it may take to drive from one city to another one and draws on a map the best travel route by car.
Teach your kids more about US geography while they have fun discovering interesting facts like which are the most separated cities in our country, how far away does grandma live, etc.
