See, sleep and grub
Many Google Maps mashups are geared towards sightseers, and let you know what to see, where to stay and what to eat.
In a sign of the power of Google Maps mashups, the government of New York City has embraced them on its nycgo.com Web site. In a guest entry on Google's official blog last year, Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced this Big Apple navigation guide for looking up entertainment, restaurants and hotels.
Some cool examples out there include the Wines and Times mashup lets people plan their own winery tours throughout the U.S., with over 3,200 vineyards and wineries clickable on the map.
Another neat one is Gruvr, a mashup lets music fans type in a band name and see where on the map upcoming shows will be.
