<4>Area code (720) is an overlay for area code (303).

<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Alice) 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 Alice. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Alice
