Our family loves to hit the road and go exploring across the United States in search of something amazing. I am personally at 38 states and the rest of the family is building their state list quickly. The kids have been to 28 states so far and we’re working to add new states to their list with every road trip opportunity. But how do you track your travels? Keeping up with where you have been is almost as much fun as experiencing new states and countries. There are many different ways that people track their travels. Here is one of my favorite ideas!

How do You Track Your Travels?There are many ways to track your travels and share your adventures, but one of the ways that we are enjoying is the scratch-off travel maps. You can order USA maps or World Map – it just depends on whether you are focusing on United States domestic travel like we are right now or exploring the entire world. Since we have not taken the kids outside the US yet, we chose to showcase the USA travel tracker map and scratch off only the states that all 5 of us have been to. As we go on family vacations, we will continue to scratch off the rest of the states and see how quickly we can uncover the entire United States!
Landmass’s USA with national parks Travel Tracker Map™ will get you out on the road ready to explore! The top layer is made of gold foil, much like a scratch ticket, with vibrant colors underneath Printed on the gold foil is the state names, national parks, state capitals and highest peaks. Hidden underneath is the interstate highways to follow your road trips, as well as major cities and river systems for added detail.The easiest way to scratch off the gold foil is to take a coin and start scratching! This was one more way we can share the memories of our road trips as we uncovered each state.
- “Oh, I remember Missouri! That’s when we went to Springfield to visit Lincoln’s homeplace and grave!”
- “Minnesota? Oh yeah! That’s the Mall of America state!”
- “Lake Ontario? Oh definitely! That’s when we climbed the cliffs at Chimney Bluff!”
