Milwaukee, Wisconsin, US
This place is special to me because my girlfriend and I visited the island during a milestone birthday. It was my first time visiting the Keys and I was blown away by the lush trees and flowers, the intriguing history, the abundant sunshine, tropical birds and marine life...and the delicious fish and fritters! There's simply no better place to celebrate a birthday, Key West is truly a paradise! This map is now a cherished keepsake of my vacation, but it can also be used as a guide for anyone planning their first-time visit!
Port St Lucie, FL, US
This is our walk route which is a little over 3 miles. It was a coping ritual that is now habit. We see gopher turtles, plumeria trees blooming, egrets, herons, ibis, spoonbills, wood storks, singing frogs and alligators, who is our friendly neighborhood map monster. We moved to Florida back in November and we love it here!

My small town of Douglas Massachusetts is home to the beautiful Douglas State Forest, 1500 acres full of wildlife and birds, flowers and plants, woods and waterways and miles of walking trails. This pretty walk—around the beaver pond, past old foundations and stone walls, among the glacial erratic boulders and through the hemlock grove—is one of my favorites.
This gorgeous area on the Southern California coast is home to some of the rarest pine trees in the world. It's a wonderful place for a walk, either on the bluff trails or along the beach.
Between Concord and Walnut Creek, CA, sits Lime Ridge Open Space for walkers, hikers, and mountain bikers to enjoy. It's wild land so we see coyote and snakes. A herd of cattle work 24/7 to keep the grass short to mitigate fires. We hike a 3 mile loop (our legs never looked so good). At the summit of this section we get views of Suisun Bay, three cities, a long range of high hills, and Mt. Diablo, one of the highest peaks in the region. Spectacular!
As the world’s first Garden City, Letchworth was created with both of those two attributes in mind. A place for hustle and bustle of city life with restaurants, coffee shops and all the local shops you’ll need, nestled in the expanse of green open spaces with trees, parks and leisure facilities all around.
Stanley Park is one of the largest urban parks in Canada and is only 10 min from my home. There are a lot of things to see. My Favorite route is a walk from Second Beach to Brockton point. You can't miss the features on this way! Meet Raccons near the Lost Lagoon, the flowers on the Rose Garden , and see the view of the North Vancouver from the lawn close to the Brockton Oval. Some Restaurants , Vancouver Aquarium and other attractions are temporarily closed, but you can Enjoy the fresh air and the giants trees right now!
I have been born and raised in Rio de Janeiro. Copacabana is without a doubt my favorite place to walk. A place that I lived for many years and that is still my favorite today. The energy of the people, the beauty of nature, the explosion of colors was the reason why Tom Jobim named Copa The Princess of the Sea. Every time I need an injection of energy I visit the streets of Copacabana. Visiting Copacabana always makes me smile, makes me feel that life is beautiful and I always leave the city full of inspiration.
Below I leave the lyrics of Copacabana composed by the genius of Brazilian Bossa Nova, Tom Jobim and I invite you to listen to it. Enjoy!
Existem praias tão lindas cheias de luz
Nenhuma tem o encanto que tu possuis
Tuas areias, teu céu tão lindo
Tuas sereias sempre sorrindo
Copacabana princesinha do mar
Pelas manhãs tu és a vida a cantar
E á tardinha o Sol poente
Deixa sempre uma saudade na gente
Copacabana o mar eterno cantor
Ao te beijar ficou perdido de amor
E hoje vivo a murmurar só a ti
Copacabana eu hei-de amar

My husband and I live in a remote mountain valley in Eastern Oregon with our German Shepherd pup and our kitty. We are always looking for beautiful walking spots with lots of steep hills (so that our puppy can get all of his energy out). This loop is the perfect mix of challenging hills made worth it by breathtaking views of the valley. It is a great loop to run as well. On especially beautiful days it is worthwhile to keep climbing up through the huckleberry and rosehip filled forest to the top of the hill where you can linger and take in the 360 degree views of snow capped mountains and Ladd Marsh.
