Local Experts Show Off Their Favorite Places on Google Maps

Google Maps has just announced a new feature called Favorite Places where users can select either the global or local option to see what trendsetters and local experts select as their favorite places and businesses. Google is using this new project as a way to bring attention to local businesses while encouraging those without websites to get online. As much as I like to think I already have my list of personal city faves, I absolutely love this feature because it opens up so many new options for me and you can see a gallery of photos from the location! Additionally, if you're planning a trip, you can find out where the best snowboarding locations are (suggested by Tony Hawk), or see where Al Gore and his family like to vacation.

Showed up on my G1 (which, sadly, now feels ancient, but I still love it), so I started using it and I find it to be pretty helpful.
