Long time no chat! I’m SO excited to share this next little project of mine since it took weeks to find everything (and even then I’m still adding places 😅). It’s a…CHRISTMAS MAP!!! I was talking with friends all last month about places we wanted to go for Christmas-themed decor and activities and there was no way we would remember them all just by talking about them or even jotting them down in our phones. Then it hit me: what if there was something we could reference in real time and figure out places to go that are near us? Enter: custom Google Maps.
If you go to the map legend you’ll see that I divided the map by neighborhood for convenience, like all the spots in River North or Logan Square. I can’t seem to figure out how to move the groups around (put River North next to Gold Coast, etc.) so if anyone has a tip on that please let me know and I can update it! As for the colors, the ones in red are spots I’ve visited this year already (pics below). I hope to go to as many as possible – who’s with me? 😉 If there’s a spot I’m missing, let me know and I can add it in!
One thing I ask is if you use the map/visit any of the places on it after reading this, please share it on social media with the hashtags #pinkparkfinds and #walkwithpinkpark so I can see it. Thanks!!
Highlights from this year and last:
Public House’s Grinch Cake Shake
Tuco & Blondie
Park & Field
The Walnut Room inside Macy’s on State Street
Christkindlmarket – a classic!
Christmas Trees Around the World at the Museum of Science & Industry
Santa Baby Pop-Up at Deuce’s & The Diamond Club
Christmas Club Pop-Up at Country Club Bar
Snow Globes at the Godfrey
This definitely won’t be the last you see of these maps because consider myself addicted. So since I want to make another one (or five), what map would you want to see? Leave a comment below!
See you in the next post,
