Using Reminders to create travel maps

Gabe Weatherhead at MacDrifter on using Reminders to create lists of map locations:

Reminders is also great for vacation planning. I keep a list of map locations for New England breweries in Reminders. When I recently took a trip to Portland Maine, it was a simple task to put the map list in the order I wanted to visit, tapping through to Maps to get directions or links to to brewery Web site.

This is obviously a “hack” of sorts but it works. Google Maps and Foursquare both have similar functionality — Google Maps has a “My Maps” feature and Foursquare allows you to create “Lists” — but I’ve always thought Apple Maps should have something similar. Perhaps this is a good stop gap until it does.
