With gas prices constantly fluctuating from record lows to record highs, many people are rethinking how they plan their road trips.  A great way to determine the different travel destinations you can reach within a budget is to create a radius map.

A radius map outlines all areas within a specific radius distance (1 mile, 5 miles, 10 miles, 100 miles, etc.) around your center location.  Road trippers on a budget can create a radius map to help them determine which destinations are within a reasonable distance of their homes.  Knowing exact distances will also help you estimate gas costs for your road trip.

Planning your road trips using a distance radius map has many advantages.  You can get some great travel ideas.  If you place your starting point in New York and establish a distance radius of 500 miles, Toronto, Montreal, Cleveland, and Virginia Beach are potential destinations you could travel to.  Radius maps also allow you to plan out multiple stops while maximizing efficiency.


For your next road trip destination, don’t just pick any random point.  Use a radius map to plan a trip that is efficient, cost-effective, and fun.  DaVinci Business Graphics provides custom radius and drive time maps for anywhere in the US and the world.  Specify the coverage area for your map and add points of interest, restaurant locations, and other information to make your map the ultimate planning tool.   Click Here to Get Started
