Outdoor Activities ...

As we travel, we like to pursue some of our interests (such as astronomy and bird watching).

When in Lisbon, we use the following websites to find information relevant to Lisbon and the surrounding area.

    • Whether using binoculars, a small telescope or the naked-eye, the Heavens-Above website can help you to find your way around the night-time sky. In addition to detailed sky charts, their website will help you find planets, asteriods, comets, satellites and their tracks across the sky.

How Far From Lisbon to ...

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

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

  • View Our List ...
    • Waukesha, which is the Seat of Waukesha County and lies 9 miles [14.5 km]<1> to the south. If you could walk a straight line from Lisbon to Waukesha, with an average speed<4> of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour, it would take four to five hours to make the trip. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take a little over three hours.
    • Madison, which is the State Capital of Wisconsin, lies 58 miles [93.3 km] to the west (W). Driving, with an average speed of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, would take less than an hour, a buggy would take over two days and walking would take most of three days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 652 miles [1,049.3 km] to the east southeast (ESE). Driving would take just over a day, a buggy would take 26 days and walking would take 37 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Lisbon) 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 Lisbon. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Lisbon

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Lisbon. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.1511, Longitude: -88.2462       In this case, the coordinates for Lisbon 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>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<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 Lisbon 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 314.834 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 311.966 degrees.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 308.50 degrees.
