How to Use the Chart
The purpose of this chart is to give an estimation, not an exact time or distance.
The starting and ending points in each town are generally the town center—usually the City Hall, Chamber of Commerce, airport or some other official central place. You may be starting or ending at some other point, so please keep that in mind. Likewise, driving habits, the day of the week, and time of travel can affect driving times, as can road conditions and weather.
Importantly, the table is organized by city categories, with cities in Maricopa County in one section; cities in Pinal County, which are part of the Greater Phoenix area, are seen in another; major destinations elsewhere in the State of Arizona listed separately; and finally, well-known driving destinations outside Arizona listed in the last section.
