<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Mims - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>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 from Point A (ie- Mims) 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 Mims. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Mims

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Mims. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.2294, Longitude: -90.1306
