Footnotes ...

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

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Washington. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Town of Washington

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Washington. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.7789, Longitude: -90.9710     [Map].   In this case, the coordinates for Washington have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
