Google Map Places

If you run a community-oriented business have you considered a map showing features of interest around your neighborhood?  The Google Maps API makes it easy.  You can designate items of interest to show, such as:

  •  Museums,
  • Art Galleries
  • Restaurants
  • Coffee Shops
  • Parks,

and many, many more. View all the types of places available here.

There are many things you could do this this.  Put your business at the center of the map with a permanent marker and popup, then show points of interest around you.  Are you a Bed & Breakfast or Hotel?  How about stores and restaurants in walking distance?  A coffee shop?  Show nearby parks or bookstores.  Own rentals or selling a home?  Show nearby amenities.
