A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Clarence) 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 Clarence. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from ClarenceOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Clarence.
