The folks over at Google Maps have crafted a nifty infographic outlining the summer search activity on maps.google.com in various countries. From the end of May to the beginning of September, the infographic highlights some of the top-rising searches and most often-searched landmarks on Google Maps.
From the blog post:
North Americans sought out the best local beaches to help cool off from the summer heat. In comparison, many more people from Spain, Italy and France searched for community swimming pools. In cooler areas of the U.K. the rising Google Maps searches included many indoor activities such as squash, bars and going to the gym. And, as expected, travel was a clear choice for the summer, as indicated by a surge in searches for lodging in almost every region.
