Resort Maps, creator of 100 customized travel maps across the United States, United Kingdom, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico, recently revamped the look of its Web site, www.resortmaps.com.
The new and improved Web site showcases Resort Maps brand new logo, as well as a number of other new features, including links to travel tips, travel discounts, featured destinations and reviews of Resort Maps advertisers, courtesy of TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site. The new site also provides easy access to online versions of Resort Maps so that traveler’s can navigate around the map in the area they plan to visit before their trip and discover the best places to stay, eat, shop and play. The site also includes an order form for travelers who would like a hard copy map.
“When some people turn a landmark age, they change the way they dress or buy a sports car. When we printed our 100th map, we decided to revamp and improve our Web site,” said Peter Hans, president of Resort Maps Franchise, Inc. “Besides being more user-friendly, we think we’ve added some features to make online visitors’ experience at resortmaps.com far more enjoyable.”
Hans pens one of those new features, “Peter Picks”. A former investment banker who worked abroad for more than a dozen years, Hans has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Australia. With the “Peter’s Picks” column, he describes some favorite destinations, both within the Resorts Maps network and to places he hopes to create Resort Maps in the not so distant future.
“The column is just one more fun aspect of the new site,” said Hans. “Our Web site is also a valuable resource to travelers as our maps have been throughout the company’s more than a quarter of a century in business.”
Resort Maps are colorful, hand-drawn maps of towns and cities, distributed free to area visitors at travel information and rest areas as well as at advertiser locations. Each map highlights local attractions and things to do, restaurants, accommodations, retail shops, real estate and other services. Each advertiser on the map is represented with a display ad on the perimeter of the map, including a color-coded grid locator and their actual building hand-drawn, highlighted and labeled, making them easy to locate.

About Resort Maps
Headquartered in the Green Mountains of Vermont, Resort Maps has been creating and publishing advertising maps in the northeastern U.S. since 1986. In 1993, Resort Maps expanded its reach by creating a franchise model for distribution of its colorful, hand-drawn maps of resort towns and cities. Today, that network of franchises has grown to 100 Resort Maps in publication in the US and the UK, with several more in the process of being published. Nearly 20 million Resort Maps will be printed and distributed in 2010.
