How many blocks are there in one mile?

Answer

A distance of 1 mile is equal to between 8 and 10 blocks, depending on the city. For example, Chicago, Illinois considers 8 blocks to be a mile while San Francisco, California considers 10 blocks to be a mile. Miles are a generic unit of measure for distances or lengths which are rather long, like when driving in a car. Blocks are used to break down sections of a city for easier management and as a form of designation.
