Rachael Ray's Google Maps US travel mashup

US tv personality Rachael Ray is getting into the Google Maps mashup act by mapping places mentioned in the travel section of her magazine. Mapped Out maps lodging, shopping and activities tips for each of these destinations. What's unique about this travel mashup is that it isn't mapping the usual top US cities. It's mapping suggestions for you in places like California's Route 1, The Badlands in South Dakota, Michigan's West Coast and Florida's Natural Springs to name a few. There has also been a lot of thought put to how the user of this mashup is greeted when you arrive. You can take a slide show demo, contribute to the map, or search the map by national map, state or specific destination. This mashup not only gives you suggestions for places to eat, stay and do, but also destinations you may never have thought of visiting! [via]
