This is not the cheapest place to buy maps or travel items, but if time is limited and you have a little patience for shopping, place this store at the top of your list. California Map and Travel Center has everything you need to travel. EVERYTHING. Maps include general overall maps, topographical, and theme maps such as antiques and musuems. They even have globes! If you need a particular travel item, this is the best place to find it. I needed an electric plug set for an Eastern European trip and not only did they have a set, they could tell me what would work in each country. The staff is top notch-first rate. I have not used any other service other than the maps and electric equipment, but the speciality travel section is large. Pocketbooks, travel pouches, virually anything you could possible image. Get Smart probably picked up a few things in here before taking off on missions! Parking can be difficult, but try parking on the side streets.

This store saved me when I was looking for a quality map for Yosemite and the Northern Sierras! None of the available maps were what I needed: a 3-d detail map of the region. This store had it and at an extremely reasonable price... I would recommend this for anybody who is going on a long road trip or hiking trip!

You must hit this very well-stocked and mellow joint before you hit any trail or hop on a plane somewhere. They even encourage you to sit down and get to know a book or map before buying--what could be better?

I highly recommend a visit to this map store, especially if you enjoy looking at maps or globes of any type, including even maps of the stars (both types)! If you are not a map person, but do like to travel, it is still a great place for you as this store carries a full selection of travel guidebooks, language guidebooks, and armchair travel picture books for all over the world. In addition, the store has many useful items for traveling, like: compasses, passport carriers, "hidden" money pouches, fanny packs, electrical plug converters, and much more! Plus, the store is independently owned, so the staff gives you first class help all the time!

PROS: Well organized store, plenty of free parking, even includes topo maps!
CONS: Only if you are located far from Santa Monica, CA (but they do ship)!

A unique store in an area known for its chain stores but California Map and Travel is a distinct shop. If you are in Santa Monica this is must see for all map/atlas enthusiasts and a nice adventure in geekland too.
