The Map Room

Navigating on our cellphones is great but sometimes the best option is still a paper map. Over the years we have collected maps while visiting places around the world and have marked them up with attractions to see and routes to follow. On occasion we modify maps before our trip to simplify understanding a place and how to best get around. Here we offer a number of our modified maps that cover major cities, metro transit systems, parks and hiking trails. We encourage you to download and print these pdf files to help plan for future trips. Clicking on a map will set-up the download.
