The best places of 2020 mapped by Map Your City communities - Skip to main content

These places were voted the best places added to the Map Your City platform in 2020

We are grateful for our communities that kept finding creative ways to keep their followers in the loop despite this pandemic year. Tons of amazing places, experiences and stories have been added to Map Your City. But there can only be one winner.

How places were nominated

T his time we focussed on places that triggered us to see the world in a different way.  That could be out of the ordinary places, or ordinary places offering out of the ordinary experiences. Especially in times like these, without the opportunity to travel freely, many of us often looked for things to do closer to home. So we have also rewarded local impact.

Once in a while it really hits people that they don't have to experience the world in the way they have been told.
