The launch of HipMaps offers event planners and vacation rental managers the ability to go the extra mile, by providing their guests with a customized digital map highlighting their favorite local “hot spots,” providing their guests with a highly favorable and memorable traveling experience.

Sonoma, CA – August 10, 2021 – The best part about traveling is experiencing different cultures and seeing new sights. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, it is often the town locals that are asked where the great spots are to visit.

Map designer and travel enthusiast, Rachel LeRoy, brings a fresh approach to discovering local “hot spots” through personalized maps called HipMaps – a value-add for event planners and vacation rental managers.

The custom map is personalized by the event or venue host, and overlays right on top of Google Maps on the guest’s smartphone, (using the HipMaps app), blending the best of both worlds, personal recommendations, and GPS navigation. The guest’s current location is displayed right on the host’s map.

HipMaps is a modern way to personalize GPS navigation to the places that really matter

These personal and informative maps are great for weddings, reunions, vacation rental homes, inns, business events & more. Personalized recommendations make guests and visitors feel genuinely welcomed to a community, while enlightening them as to what they might want to see or experience locally during their stay.

“The best gift you can give, is direction.” – Rachel LeRoy

Venue hosts can go the extra mile and empower traveling guests to Wander Aimfully with a HipMaps custom map. No more guesswork, no more being overwhelmed by all the choices, and no more missing out on the “good stuff” when visiting new locations. This could be the “special touch” that compels guests to book a return trip, and bring their friends along with them.
