Over 100 maps of great tourist towns throughout the US and the UK from Resort Maps are now featured in the mappery collection. Each detailed map shows local shops, lodging, restaurants, and other businesses catering to tourists. Resort Map’s distinctive, colorful style highlights the best places to visit in and around town on a single map by employing a liberal interpretation of geography. The Vermont-based company distributes free printed versions of their maps around the US to tourists visiting local businesses (I bet you’ve seen them before, like at the local coffee shop).

After supper, I encourage you to retire to the Resort Maps map room to peruse the extensive collection covering towns in California, Colorado, Tennessee, Puerto Rico and every state on the east coast except Connecticut. For Anglophiles, look closely to find a few English town maps tucked away in there.
