Looking for free paper maps by mail? This is the guide for you.

Today’s travel guide packets often arrive in your mailbox, with a highway map, a book or magazine, historical information and sometimes coupons for dinners or lodging. State tourism boards have upped their game!

    1. Glad you guys find it useful!

      I still firmly believe you get a better ride going when you can use a paper map coupled with a GPS. We really put this to the test in Italy. We used GPS when looking for something specific in a city like Milan. But each night, we broken out our ragged map & a highlighter and used that for riding each day. The “view” was so much greater for routing on the fly.

      I had a bunch of these links saved. I was inspired to share them by soth – so thanks for the push!

  1. Wow, this is indeed useful! I will be on a riding trip with some of my friends. it will be my first time to lead them and I do really need maps and while searching online, I found your site and this is the best resource ever. thanks for sharing this!

  2. Does anyone have any links to Great Britian, Scotland, Australia paper maps?? I lived in GB, and visited Scotland and Australia. I’ve also visited about 40 states here, and will be using maps as flooring material in my cottage (look up paper bag floors, you’ll see what I’m going to do with maps instead) and need all the free maps I can get! Thanks in advance!

  3. Thanks muchly! We homeschool and are beginning a road trip through the entire US. Im location state maps as well as a US map. this is so helpful!!
    Although your Alabama link goes no where. Nor can I find Alabama state map anywhere.
