NEWBURYPORT AND PLYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS AND WAITSFIELD, VERMONT…
Resort Maps, creator of more than 98 customized travel maps across the United States, England, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico, recently announced Bill Grace as the new owner of their Plymouth and Newburyport, Massachusetts operations. The Concord, Mass. resident took over the publishing of the two maps for Anne Monti, effective March 29, 2010.
Resort Maps are colorful, hand-drawn maps of towns and cities, distributed free to area visitors at travel information and rest areas as well at advertiser locations. The Best of Plymouth and Best of Newburyport maps highlight local attractions and things to do, restaurants, accommodations, retail shops, real estate and other services in the two towns. Each advertiser on the map is represented with a display ad surrounding the perimeter of the map, including a color-coded grid locator and their actual building hand-drawn, highlighted and labeled, making it easy to locate.
“Resort Maps offers a good product and has a long history of satisfied customers,” said Grace. “I feel very fortunate to have come across this opportunity and am looking forward to continuing the success of both maps.”
In addition to the printed map, Resort Maps can also be found on-line at www.resortmaps.com. Here you will find interactive maps of all 98 map areas to choose from. These interactive maps allow the viewer to see the business’s advertisement and read a description of each business as they scroll over their building and to connect to the website of the business for further information.
A born entrepreneur who holds an MBA from Boston College, Grace also owns a Cookies by Design franchise, located in Woburn, Massachusetts in the Cummings Office Park. Prior to that, he owned a property management company in Colorado as well two other small businesses.
Married, he and his wife Robin live in Concord, Massachusetts with their two children.

Resort Maps began creating and publishing maps in the northeastern U.S. back in 1986. In an effort to continue the company’s growth and simultaneously maintain the quality of the product, Resort Maps became a franchisor in 1993. Since adopting the franchise model, Resort Maps has grown steadily to more than 98 maps distributed across 20 states as well as towns and cities in England, Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.
“We publish 20 million maps per year in nearly 100 cities and towns for a good reason. Our maps are fun, easy-to-read and they really do entice visitors to stop and see some of the local attractions before heading to the next part of your trip. Our advertisers like the maps for that very same reason,” said Peter Hans, president of Resort Maps.
