How Far From Winnipeg to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Winnipeg to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers, the straight-line distance beginning in Winnipeg and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Lebanon, which is the Seat of Laclede County and lies 20 miles [32.2 km]<1> to the west northwest. If you could walk a straight line from Winnipeg to Lebanon, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take just over a day to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of a day.
    • Jefferson City, which is the State Capital of Missouri, lies 67 miles [107.8 km] to the north (N). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than two hours, a buggy would take about three full days and walking would take three full days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 831 miles [1,337.4 km] to the east (E). Driving would take just about two full days, a buggy would take 33 days and walking would take 48 days.
    • The shortest distance<5> to Jerusalem (specifically the Temple Mount and the Dome of the Rock) is 6,567 miles [10,568.6 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<6>
    • The distance to the Great Mosque of Mecca (specifically the Ka'bah - or Kaaba ) is 7,303 miles [11,753 km] and it lies to the northeast (NE).<7>

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a '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- Winnipeg) to Point B.

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Winnipeg. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 37.6045, Longitude: -92.3021       In this case, the coordinates for Winnipeg have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<5>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Winnipeg to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 317.408 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 314.158 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 311.856 degrees.
