Stay a While
Where do you stay when you travel? Sometimes we stay with friends and family and we already have those places mapped. What about hotels, motels, hostels, camp grounds and caravan parks? When we map at home, these amenities for visitors can be invisible to us. Let's turn that around and map the places for visitors in our towns.
When mapping for tourists and other visitors we should really aim to be on our best behavior. Include addressing information, a parking area and driveway if at all possible. Adding local public transit details are helpful too.
Hotels and motor hotels typically provide private accommodations in lockable rooms or suites.
A guest house or bed and breakfast provide a room in a residence.
A hostel provides simpler, shared accommodations.
And a camp site or caravan site require you to bring your accommodations with you.
