<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Norwood Village) 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 Norwood Village.
