1. Wild Texas
Find out directions, driving distances and all while getting info on parks, wildlife and attractions along the way. Just select your starting point and destination, and it will do the rest for you. They allow you to search via landmarks, which is handy if you want the best route to something specific. They give the example of The Alamo.
2. Map Crow
Put in two cities and states, and find out the distance between them. It will give you the distance in both miles and kilometers, the bearing and a map of the area. You can also put in just the city and it will give you selections of both state and country regions. This one is really simple, but not bad if you just want basic information.

Worried about how much it is going to cost you to drive from point ‘a’ to point ‘b’? This site gives you several ways to find out. Put in your starting point and destination for the quickest way. Or, you can search the gas prices by zip code, or even put in a price and find regions that are matched or lower. Find out how much it will cost completely by putting in how many miles per gallon you get, and whether or not it is a round trip.
4. Trip Calculator
Here is another way to find out how much it will cost you to drive. Put in fuel economy, fuel cost and distance. Then select two points on the map to figure out the average cost for the route. What is cool about this planner is that you can physically figure out how much it will cost going from one state to the other.
