I’m planning a little roadtrip for Labor Day weekend to get out of Saint Paul. I’ve been looking at a couple places and finding that the distances from point A to point B are the same, but the driving times are much, much different.
Saint Paul, MN to Rapid City, SD
Google maps: 608 mi (about 9 hours 56 mins)
Mapquest: 610.94 mi (about 8 hours, 37 minutes)
Yahoo maps: 614.4 mi (about 8 hours 25 mins)
Saint Paul, MN to Mackinaw City, MI
Google maps: 518 mi (about 11 hours 23 mins)
Mapquest: 514.51 mi (about 8 hours, 59 minutes)
Yahoo maps: 513.6 mi (about 10 hours 12 mins)
I can understand the mileage differences since they may choose different centers of the town to start and stop in, but the time disparities seem rather huge. So, which, if any, is more accurate?
