Reader Travel Tip of the Day: Dot Your Map

reader-travel-tip2Dot Your Map
Each Friday, we’re featuring a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from Lynda Y. of Ventura, CA, who says:

“When I am sightseeing in a new city I place small dots (from office supply store) on the places I plan to visit. It helps to find the location I am walking to on an unfamiliar map. It was a huge help on a Washington DC trip.”

Always a good idea to help yourself in an unfamiliar area, and this is a nice way to do that. Thanks Lynda!

  1. People still use paper maps? I hate walking around with a paper map looking like a tourist. I have all the maps on my phone and use navigation to get where I am going.
