Free Printable Travel Maps from I Heart Family Travel


***NOTE: Links to the download pages are at the bottom of the page. I created an additional map since Pinterest took a liking to my USA Map and turned this into the landing page for both so you wouldn’t miss out.***

I woke up with the urge to be giving today, and to make some awesome travel maps. Without further ado:  Free Printable Travel Maps from I Heart Family Travel! You are welcome! 😀

About the maps
Printable on US Letter size paper (8.5″x11″ or 21.59cm x 27.94cm) and frameable as an 8″x10″ photo, you’ll need a pdf reader to open. Get one here. Opened with Adobe, you’ll be able to edit the top banner with your family name, child’s name, year, “Our Adventures”…the possibilities are endless. Ok, it’s not that magical, just editable.

The bottom banner features Dr. Seuss’ oh so famous “You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!” quote from The Places You’ll Go. 

Once printed, you’ll be able to record your travels with stickers, mini photos, signatures, dots, scrapbook elements…however you choose.

    Thank you so much for coming up with this and sharing it as well. It was really nice of you to do it. I have been trying to find this kind of map so I can mount it and display in my room. Just a little reminder on where I will travel next.

    • Shell

      Fantastic travel motivation idea. 🙂

  4. Michelle

    This is so cool, saw it on Pinterest too. Any chance you have a Europe only version? Thanks for sharing your creative skills!

    • Shell

      I’ll make one when my work load clears up. Follow one of our social networks for an update when I post it. 🙂

        I´d also love a European version – they look very nice, thanks a lot!

    What a great idea!! I need an Italy one for my 38 day trip this summer. FUN!

    • Shell

      Lol, I’ll get to work on the Europe one soon then. Have fun!

    • Shell

      AnotherPaige, I’ve created some Europe versions of the maps here:

  6. Amber

    Thank you so much! It is adorable! You are clearly very talented and I’m so grateful for your willingness to share with all of the rest of us!!!

  7. Kelly

    Great display and fun for the family. Thanks for creating and sharing this!

  8. Lindsay Stewart

    I love this! Thank you so much! My daughter is almost 2 and we hav been traveling a lot lately, and I think this is an awesome way to document where she goes each year of her life!!

    Thank you so much for this free download!

  9. Laura

    This is a beautiful page with awsome ideas.
    I´m trying to make one of this maps of the US as a gift for my dad but I dont know how to make those colorful lines to indicate the place where we will travel.
    I have to make them or someone is the one who makes it
    I need help.

    • Shell

      Laura, once you print it out you can use scrapbooking elements to create them, or if you do digital scrapbooking you can open it in Photoshop and add them there. Alternatively, if you contact me on etsy here: if you would like me to personalize it for you. Hope this helps! Shell

  10. Erin

    How do I put dots on the places to create those lines etc?
    Thank you!!! I want to track our honeymoon adventures. 🙂

    Thank you sooooo much! My husband and I just talked about doing a map of the places we have vacationed at to see where to go next. This will help me get that project done much fast. You are so very kind.

  12. Dee

    it wont let me download it? everytime I click to download it just brings me to your page is there anything special I need to do to get it to work?

    • Shell

      The download links at the bottom of the page aren’t working?

  13. Danielle

    When I click on the US map it takes me to the World Map upload page… not sure if I’m doing something wrong?

    This is such a great idea for customizing map art, thank you for sharing!!

    • Shell

      Fixed now. Sorry about that.


    How do we download the worldmap? It wont allow me to do it on adobe… can you email we a copy?

    • Shell

      The link is for the pdf reader, scroll down to find the link to the download page for the maps.

  15. Krisztina

    Thanks for sharing. I have the same problem like Dee. Cannot download:(( Also being from Europe, do you think I can adjust the size to A4 format?

    • Shell

      Have you clicked the image at the bottom of the page? It will take you to the download page for the map of your choice. You can download it from the download section there. It should work on your printer, it will just give you a warning that it will cut off some of the image but the important elements are centered in the middle 8″x10″ so if it does, it shouldn’t be an issue. It will not fit in an 8×10″ frame if you choose “shrink to fit, though. Hope this helps!

    • Shell


      I have A1 sizes in the shop now, too if you are looking for something larger.


  16. Krisztina

    Thank you Shell. It worked today, even though I did the exact same thing yesterday.(????) Well, today is a good day.:) Thank you so much for the quick reply. It works perfectly on A4 size and the maps are beautiful. Just love them! Thank you for sharing them for free.

    • Shell

      Excellent! Wonderful to hear.

  17. Kerri

    Thanks for sharing this map with your readers! It is appreciated! Also, thanks for posting about the South Africa giveaway. I registered using your link! Take care!

  18. Elaine

    Hi, Thanks for making this. I am wondering if you are willing to edit the bottom banner for us? We are wanting to use this to map our missionaries and pray for them during kids’ Sunday School hour. I could send you the Korean language text if you think this is possible. Thanks so much.

  19. Sierra

    Thank you!

  20. Sarah

  24. Rachel

    Love this!! We are a military family and have traveled all over the world! I am wondering if there’s a way to add text blocks near each place we’ve called HOME to write the dates we lived there and which duty station (e.g. Fort Sill, OK 2003-2006), which child was born, etc. Just a suggestion!! 🙂

  25. Valerie

    These are fabulous and thank you for sharing. Kindness and generosity is still alive!

  26. sarah

    Thank you!

  27. Melinda

    Wondered if you’d be willing to make one focused on the United Kingdom? We’re on a 2-year relocation here thanks to hubbies job and would love to store our expat travel adventures on a map. I can order/pay through your Etsy store if you’d be willing. Thanks! This is a fantastic idea. 🙂

    • Shell

      Hi Melinda,

      I have a Europe based version in the shop now: and possibly a UK version soon. Follow on FB, I’ll announce updates as they come. 🙂 Shell

  28. Chris Spenceley

    Ran across your stuff on pinterst today, really great , thanks for offering it everyone. My family and I did a trancontinental trip back in 2010 from PEI Canada to BC, down to LA and back home on and off RT66 to Chicago , to CT to some friends and then home again. Your US map is ideal – would you be able to do a Canada version to pair with th US to map out our whole journey? Thanks Again.

    • Shell

      Hi Chris,

      I’ve added a few to the shop so far and will get a Letter sized version up later today:

  29. Kelly

    These look awesome–our family just took a big road trip last year that would make these great to give to my boys. The problem is that the download buttons are taking me in circles , and nothing wants to download. What am I doing wrong?

  30. Adventure Family In Motion

    These are great! I also found you on Pinterest! LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Thank you for these!!

    Hi I feel silly but is it the big green button on the right or is that something that leads to an ad? I am bit afraid of clicking on unknown buttons for fear of viruses!

    • shell

      I’m guessing it is probably an ad. I don’t think there is a big green button on this page. If it has this symbol in the top left corner of the it is an ad: Ad symbol, or if it changes after you refresh page a few times it is an ad.
