Just how far away can one get from the convenience of McDonald’s at any given time?
Turns out, not very.
Stephen von Worley at Weather Sealed set out to chart the urban sprawl of America by mapping the 13,000+ locations of McDonald’s across the lower 48 states.
With the aid of Agg Data, he created a striking map of the US, colored by distance to the nearest domestic Mickey D’s. Gorgeous, but terrifying.
The fast food chain is wall-to-wall across the eastern US and southern regions. Unsurprisingly, the ratio thins as we move west into Big Sky Country.
