I wish every city had fabric maps like Key West!

On our last trip to Key West, I purchased a fabric map of Old Town. We LOVED it! You could wad it up and stuff it in your pocket, it never wrinkles, and best of all you can clean your glasses with it! I wish more cities had these maps, since I hate to carry the paper ones that fold. They're also huge.

Just wanted to share the best travel aid we've found in years - and they're on sale right now. Here's the link: …randmcnally.com/rand-mcnally-fabmap-key-wes…

I was looking for maps of other cities and had to smile when I saw Key West on the list, so I had to share. :)

That's pretty cool, too! I wonder how the pages feel, though. I'll have to check it out next year!

Yes it is a good price (& shipping is about .25 cents). I bought mine at Amazon for about twice the price.

I always rip the map out of the Great Locations coupon booklet and keep it in my bicycle's basket the whole time.

But...I wonder... is that fabric map waterproof?

And does it list the current one-way streets as one way? (Petronia?)

I had a few surprises last visit!

Yes, the map is waterproof since it's microfiber. I'd have to look at my map to see if it lists one way streets. I don't remember those being marked, but that doesn't mean that they aren't.

We bought ours onlne, and with this current sale it's definitely a great deal!

Glad I could pass along some useful info, that's what TA is all about! Hopefully everyone loves their map as much as I love mine!
