Introduction ...

So far, we have found very little information about Benson. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Benson to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Benson, please Contact Us.




When we're planning a trip and want to make reservations or still at home and looking for a place to eat, we usually start by visiting the TripAdvisor website. Once on their website we search for what's available, then check the recommendations and experiences of other people.

Although there are many ways of searching the TripAdvisor website, we prefer to start with the TripAdvisor Tourism page. On the Tourism page you'll find a quick overview of the community, with links to restaurants, lodging, flights, rentals and nearby attractions.

While we are unaware of a TripAdvisor Tourism page that is specific to Benson, there are nearby communities that are likely to provide the information that you're looking for. If you want to learn more about those communities, the following map should be of help.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Benson, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that begins in Benson. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Benson) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Benson. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Benson

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Benson. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 32.7643, Longitude: -85.8772     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Benson have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
