This place is special to me because I came here to study at the University of Michigan and decided to stay and raise my family here. Ann Arbor is a place where I learned the most about myself, a place where I was able to explore, experience, and be a part of a warm and passionate community. I fell in love with the color of the leaves in autumn, the quirky shops on a crowded downtown street, the caring and genuinely interested people that I met. Ann Arbor is a wonderful place to live! This city has so much to offer - something for everyone to enjoy. I made this map to share some of my favorite places in Ann Arbor that have been great fun to discover and experience.
This place is special to me because it is close to home, yet it is so completely different. It is like traveling a million miles away. There is so much beautiful nature. My family loves camping and exploring all around Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
This place is special to me because after living 40 years in Columbus Ohio, I moved to Seattle and fell in love. The mountains & the Sound made me smile every day & I met one of my best friends, Diana there. As an avid runner, I was thrilled about all of the scenic routes. Diana and I recently did a JustMe5K in the Wallingford neighborhood - complete with zombie running statues, alligators and amazing views of the city from Gas Works Park. Throw in a tasty breakfast sandwich at the end & that’s a perfect 3.1 miles. 🙌
This place is special to me because it’s charm and delicious food stole my heart. One of the first things I saw in Charleston was a happy family of dolphins swimming in the harbor, which is something I had never seen before. New experiences like the wildlife made me feel connected to this small city. As we looked over the menu at Fleet Landing I saw a heron outside who was also looking for its dinner. I wanted to make this map highlighting the food we had in Charleston because of the people behind the food who cared about what they cooked and the experience they provided. The restaurants and landmarks I illustrated are just some of the many great places Charleston has to offer.
This place is special to me because it's my secret winter escape. OK, maybe not so secret as thousands of snowbirds have discovered it as well. I love Tucson not only for the fun breweries, tasty eats, farmers markets, cool shops, and fascinating historical sights but the city is surrounded by nature. To the north you can hike at Catalina State Park and Sabino Canyon, to the east and west you'll find both sections of Saguaro National Park. When hiking you may be surprised to find the desert teems with life like hummingbirds, phainopeplas, hawks, roadrunners, ringtail cats and javelinas. The cactus wren pictured here is the state bird of Arizona. Hope you like my map! :) Come explore the desert!
Why shouldn’t dogs have their own map? This map of Roswell, GA depicts great locations for the above-average canine: two vets, two groomers, two shopping experiences, and two places to board. Does your canine live in a town as dog-friendly as Roswell?
This place is special to me because it's where I find all the ingredients for my favorite Armenian and Middle Eastern meals. It's where my kids go to school and learn our language, history and culture. It's where I teach, where I bump into friends, where I overhear old men discuss politics in Western Armenian, a language UNESCO has classified as endangered. It's where newspapers are edited, holidays are celebrated, weddings, baptisms, funerals are conducted. Little Armenia is just a few blocks in a small town, but it's my home away from home.
This place is special to me, since it's been my new home since a few years. Blueberries are are emblematic of the region, so they've been incorporated into the map. There's lots to see and do in the region, particularly nature-related activities. If you like hiking, there are many beautiful trails in the region, some of which include breathtaking views of the Saguenay Fjord. Bienvenue au Saguenay Lac-St-Jean!
You know you want a wide selection of wonderfully weird things to do in Austin, Texas! I lived in Austin for years, so the city is near and dear to my heart. There are so many wacky things to do in this place. From the funky goodness of South Congress to the Cathedral of Junk (made of...yes...junk) to Chicken Poo Bingo, Austin has a totally unique vibe. My father attended graduate school at UT in the 70's, and I'd get to visit the campus with him occasionally. I grew up on Willie Nelson and Schlotzky's. I worked in an art gallery on 6th street after college and fell in love with my husband in those years. We've taken romantic strolls through Laguna Gloria, played mini-golf at Peter Pan's under the giant T-Rex, and held hands while moonlight snorkeling at Barton Springs. The whole city makes me feel young and in love with happy memories! Seeing the bat colony rise into the sky at dusk is something you should see at least once in a lifetime. And don't skip Uncommon Objects...they have everything you don't know you want yet. Do you hear that, taxidermied tiny alligator wearing a party hat? I'm coming for you. Shiner Bock ice cream from Amy's will be the perfect end to any day. Happy Austin-ing!
I moved to Vancouver Island 10 years ago (from UK) and fell in love with its raw beauty. The coastline is rugged and beautiful with both rocky cliffs and some enormous sandy beaches. There are hundreds of islands just off the coast and many opportunities for whale watching, kayaking and winter surfing. The climate is temperate rain forest so inland there are forests and lakes galore with thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails. The terrain is largely mountainous, but there are also rolling pastures with lots of small farms, vineyards and an enthusiastic local food scene. I live in Duncan, known as the City of Totems, which has a large and popular Saturday farmers market. Victoria is the capital city of BC and is rich with history, good food and culture. The Inner Harbour is a lovely place to walk around to see the boats, historic buildings and the BC Museum. Vancouver is just over an hour away by car ferry or 15 minutes by float plane.
This place is special to me because it illustrates a place of growth and integrity for me and many others. It is a place many students call home throughout the academic year and is the place I will get to accomplish my goals of getting both a bachelor's and master's degree from
