Figuring out what to see, eat and do when planning a vacation can be daunting. Today we’re introducing updates to Google Maps that make it easier to find inspiration, share travel recommendations, and really get a feel for a place before you visit.

Get the best recommendations with new updates to lists

To make the most of a trip, it’s important to get recommendations you can trust — so we’re making it easy to discover helpful lists from top sites and the Google Maps community, starting in select cities in the U.S. and Canada.

Here’s how it works: say you’re planning a trip to New York or Los Angeles — just search for the city in Maps and swipe up to see curated lists of recommendations from people who know the city well. You’ll also see lists from sites you love, like The Infatuation’s expert-curated restaurants, Lonely Planet’s guides to iconic sites and hidden gems, The New York Times 36 Hours itineraries, and OpenTable’s guides to the best new restaurants. If you find a list you like, save it to your map or share it with friends.

Whether you’re a repeat visitor and want to try the new trendy spot in town or you’re planning an epic international vacation and want to visit one of the city’s best restaurants, now you can find the perfect place with restaurant lists created by Google Maps. These lists are based on places people are interested in or loving on Maps right now:

  • The 🔥Trending list is updated weekly with places that have recently seen a spike in popularity on Maps. It’s ideal for helping you discover the latest hot spots.
  • The 🏆 Top list is home to places the Maps community has consistently loved. Come here to find an area’s tried and true, longstanding favorites.
  • The 💎 Gems list is for places that might be a neighborhood’s best kept secret. It’s home to great restaurants that still fly under the radar.
