The Washinton Post is known for the lovely visualizations accompanying their stories. In a recent post, they visualized how long it would take you to get out of the downtown areas of various cities. They compared all the major U.S. cities and examined different leaving times. Unfortunately, I cannot copy the visualizations’ text here, but please do have a look at the originals.

 

How far could you get in 1-5 hours when departing from downtown areas?
How far could you get in 1 hour when leaving Los Angeles (right) and Dallas (left), at 4 (red), 7 (yellow) or 10 p.m. (blueish).
