Here's a page with a visual representation of the distance from Earth to Mars, as well as the Moon and a reminder of how far one has gotten every tenth of the way. Every "let's go to Mars before the Moon" advocate should be forced to manually scroll through this page once (no cheating by using page down).
One other option of course is the map I made last year, with the Earth to the Moon in blue and Earth to Mars in red. No cheating for this one either; you have to keep the scale the same and simply keep moving the map over until you reach Mars in the northeast.
