Free Maps and Travel Guides of All 50 States- The Ultimate Resource!

How to get free state maps and tourism guides

If you’re like me, even though GPS has made it simple to navigate, I still love a good map. It’s imperative we teach our children how to use and read maps. Let’s face it- we need to know how to navigate in this technology-filled world with thousands of choices to be navigated each day. Think about all the analogies you can share and build character in your family and children from just learning to read a map!

Which (website, friend, way to go, verse, food, book to read, movie to watch, text to send, fill in the blank) one do I choose? Which way do I go? 

I knew it was possible to contact each state tourism department to receive a free map, and you can also request state travel guides. Some states even have kid-specific activity guides, and I’ve even received bumper stickers! 

Have your kids do the research for an awesome homeschool lesson, supplemental geography lesson, or just use the maps yourself to help you get where you’re going! As the old Chinese proverb says,

Here is an alphabetical list of free state maps available from most state tourism departments. Just click the links and provide your information and address, and the maps will arrive directly to you! (The links at the end referenced dot are for the department of transportation, in case you’d like an additional.) Enjoy the best FREE United States geography lesson you could ask for!

    A GPS can definitely be helpful, but I still have to have a physical map to feel confident I know where I’m going!

    THANK YOU!! We are headed out cross-country, and this was an AMAZING find, everything together, and for all the states I needed only 2 links were not exact – but the info was still easy to find. This is an amazing resource, and I agree, the kiddo pages available from many states are great.

    I have a Map of ‘Indian County of Arizona Colorado New Mexico Utah’ 2000 edition.
    I am wondering if this Map has been updated recently, and if so, where can I obtain
    a couple of Maps. It has been of great help to us and we want to update, if we can.
