I could have sworn that somebody once posted a map showing a rough guide to so many hours driving from charlotte.

I cannot find this does any body know off it?

As in approx 7 hours drive time, I could be in Nasville TN, Orlando FL or Colombus OH.

I got bored one day and made up an approximate drive time chart using Google. All of the times are from Starting from Denver, NC (28037) so obviously if you're in South Charlotte there's gonna be a difference depending on which direction you're headed.

And here's an older post, it uses Microsoft Streets 2006 software but the time estimates are way off but a fun little picture nonetheless. Charlotte, NC is starting point for the map below.

This is assuming a start point right in the middle of Charlotte and "normal" driving speeds.

I haven't driving these routes, but it appears Wilmington (198 miles), Myrtle Beach (201 miles) & Charleston (209 miles) represent the closest beaches to Charlotte.
