How many times have you wondered (or has someone asked) "How far is it to ----" This use to take a lot of page shuffling and even in the days of Google Maps a few steps to get the answer.

Now with a couple of clicks you can answer the distance question with ease. Just enter one city from the drop down list. Then select the second city. Just click "Get the Distance" and - Shazam! - there's your answer.

For example if you were in Boston the distance to Topeka would be 1291.8 Miles. And some more fun facts: That's 2079 Kilometers. The approximate flight duration time from Boston to Topeka is 2 hours and 41 minutes. And if you want to get in your row boat it's 1121.8 Nautical Miles - but you'd need to fix it up with wheels - and special oars!

This one is quick and easy - and worth bookmarking.
