40+ Maps Of America That’ll Teach You Something You Probably Didn’t Know

Before the invention of the GPS people used these things called maps. They would tell you where you needed to go as long as you had a magnifying glass and a place to stop and ask a gas station clerk if you were heading in the right direction.

Now, maps are fun. Maps can explain America in more ways than just the direction we’re going. They can tell us the largest coffee chain per state and even track the eye color of each governor by state. Maps like this explain America in a way you probably haven’t thought of before.
