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

<3>The communities in our count are those provided by the 2010 Census, so keep in mind that our population rings will only include the people living in those communities. Smaller communities usually don't participate directly in the Census and therefore they won't be included. While our count is a close approximation, it shouldn't be considered as a complete or accurate count.
