Site of the Day:

Nerdy Day Trips is anything but a typical site. Most everyone is familiar with Google Maps and how to use it. This site builds on that familiar tool with a creative overlay. It’s certainly not the first Google Maps mashup, but I think it is a great example for designers. A project like this never would worked without an understanding of the technologies used to build it. The site’s beautiful skin gives it personality and makes it memorable without getting in the way of its function.
