New Maps Showcase the Best of the West

We’re all familiar with the quote, "Go West, young man,” the famous words attributed to renowned19th-century newspaper editor Horace Greeley. While Greeley’s quote had to do with Manifest Destiny as the nation moved westward, this saying is still relevant today.

How so? It all has to do with the release by MAD Maps of two new Rides of a Lifetime maps.

MAD Maps, the premier publisher of scenic road trip maps, is proud to announce the addition of its Historic Route 66 and Southwest maps to its product line of 50+ titles. Rides of a Lifetime maps are those epic journeys of which you’ve always dreamed—once-in-a-lifetime road trips that you’ll never forget.

Both maps are now available at 20% off (through October). Just use promo code NEWROL (all caps and no spaces) upon checkout.

The Historic Route 66 map runs over 2,400 miles, starting in Chicago, Illinois and heading west to the shores of the mighty Pacific in Santa Monica, California. While the original Route 66 was decommissioned back in 1985, MAD Maps’ diligent road scouts have “reconstructed” the famed “Mother Road.” As you travel through towns big and small, you’ll be treated to all of the must-stop attractions that make this serpentine roadway unique. You’ve heard the names—Cadillac Ranch, Wigwam Motel, Route 66 Museum, to name a few—but now it’s time to for you to check out these funky roadside attractions strung along the length of Route 66, as you take a literal and metaphoric journey into the heart and soul of America.

The Southwest map showcases some of the most-scenic, otherworldly terrain this U.S. of A. has to offer, as you circle the Four Corners region via 2,600+ spectacular miles, each better than the last. You’ll start at the aptly named Grand Canyon and head across Arizona into northern New Mexico, southwest Colorado and southern Utah. You’ll be treated to once-in-a-lifetime photo ops at such phenomenal national parks as Petrified Forest, Arches, Canyonlands, Bryce and Zion. You’ll even travel a Colorado gem of a road with the priceless moniker of “Million Dollar Highway.” You’re set to go, as long as you don’t pass out traveling these high mountain passes!

So heed Horace Greeley’s advice, though over 150 years later, with the help of MAD Maps. Our advice is that later in life you regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did. So start your Ride of a Lifetime today.
