Here are some resources for learning about your state:

State Websites: Type in your state's abbreviation and .gov into the address bar to go to that state's page.  Examples:,,
    On these pages, look for "tourism" or "visit"

US Census Bureau Quick Facts
Statistics like population, demographics, economy, business

Lonely Planet
Travel site with things to do and see all over.

Brochures, Maps, and Budgets

  • Start creating your brochure in Pages.  Go to the Template Chooser and use the "Classic" template.
  • Map out your route in Google Maps.  Be sure to print a screenshot of your map, rather than the map itself (otherwise it will print all the directions!).
  • Create your budget in a Google Spreadsheet.  Use this spreadsheet as an example.
