You probably already use Google to search every vacation-related item under the sun. From destinations to travel gear, Google is the go-to — so it shouldn’t be that surprising that Google Maps can give you a leg up on vacation planning as well. Google Maps’ summer lists will point you in the direction of everything you need to have an unforgettable family getaway.

Using data collected from the top trending places of the season, Google Maps has compiled several lists of the best summer destinations and activities. If, for example, you’re hoping to avoid the dreaded summer brain drain, check out the Google Edutainment List, which gives you the best spots to explore that are both fun and educational.

Other lists include the top summer eats and trending beaches. You can also create your own lists of your favorite spots and share them with friends and family.
