Portland, Oregon, US
Visit seagulls at the beach, bison at the park, parrots on Telegraph Hill, Claude the albino alligator at the Steinhart Aquarium of the California Academy of Sciences (and tons of other wonderful wonderful animals!), and lots more critters across the city on this guide to San Francisco's animals! Though this map does depict some (real) major streets and freeways, it is not to scale, so the distance between these places can be misleading, and all references are approximate.

San Francisco is a very cozy city. You can buy chowder soup in Fisherman’s Wharf, sitting beside the bay area and watching Alcatraz Island. Walking in Union Square and taking Cable Car. Passing through the small hills, there’s Golden Gate Bridge’s firework show on evening. Everything in here are wonderful and comfortable!

As a North Carolinian and an alumni of UNC, I had to create a map of Chapel Hill, NC when I discovered They Draw & Travel. This college town is steeped in history and tradition so I thought what better way to share Chapel Hill with you than to begin with a win over 'Dook' at the Dean Dome, followed by a trip north through the campus to celebrate on Franklin St. and finally kicking back on the front porch at the Carolina Inn. Visit Chapel Hill once and you'll understand why it gained the nickname, 'The Southern Part of Heaven.'
This map is a conceptual visualization of the 5 boroughs. Each borough has a different feeling. There are different styles of architecture and sights. I feel like a tourist in New York City when I go to a different neighborhood and I wanted to capture that feeling.
